Educating and discipling leaders for life.
The DCA Difference
A Christian education is more than starting the day with a prayer. We use a tested and academically rigorous Bible-based curriculum, that weaves God’s story throughout the school day. Our goal is to impart a worldview that explores and explains God’s creation and our role in that created world.
Having the best teachers in our classrooms is critical for providing the best education possible! In our classes, you’ll find teachers who are passionate about learning and want to see every student succeed. They see their role as a mission to care for and encourage their students, helping them find motivation and self discipline, while also discipling students and investing in their character.
Of course we seek subject mastery in the basics, like reading, writing, and arithmetic. But, as a private school, we have the freedom to provide creative learning opportunities so that our students are prepared to take on our modern world. We focus on age appropriate lessons in technology and the arts, as well as special instruction in spelling, speech, and handwriting. With our small class sizes, we encourage collaborative teamwork, as well as the skills to work independently.
We believe that we are called to educate and disciple in partnership with our students’ families and home churches. Parents are encouraged to be active in the school and in their child’s education – with the goal of creating a cohesive community that uplifts and supports the students, each other, and the school broadly.
Thank you for your interest in Dalhart Christian Academy! Our mission calls for us to provide a quality Christian education for all – and we invite you to learn more about our school to see if it’s the right choice for your family. We offer open enrollment throughout the school year, with enrollment opening to the public in the April before the school year.
Enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year will open on April 1. We have a steadfast commitment to small class sizes, with limits well below the federal mandates regarding teacher-to-student ratios. Many of our classes reach capacity, but we maintain an active waiting list in those instances. To inquire about availability in a specific classroom, please call the school office at 806.244.6482.
We are pleased to offer scholarships, tuition assistance, and discounts to help keep tuition as affordable as possible for families. If there is a financial need, we encourage families to apply for a scholarship. Applications are evaluated by our Board of Directors and/or the entity that sponsors the scholarship to determine the awarded amount. We are so thankful to our donors and sponsoring churches who provide much needed scholarship assistance for families!
