Principal's Message

  • On behalf of our staff, welcome you to Deep Creek Academy!

    At DCA we believe that all students can reach their highest potential in a safe, respectful and supportive learning environment. Our team is fully committed to supporting the learning process for every student by teaching the skills necessary to reach any goal. We believe that a single student’s success is not only their success, but our success as a staff/school, their family’s success and also our community’s success. We are dedicated to humbly serve and teach each student what it means to have a positive work ethic, belong to a caring community and develop individual responsibility. We will nurture academic growth to prepare all students for a college or career ready future. One of our goals for the 2019-2020 school year is to continue to provide students the opportunity to demonstrate their learning and growth through the communication of creative and critical thinking along with the collaboration with peers and staff.

    At DCA it is very important that all community stakeholders feel welcome and a part of the exciting changes taking place on our school campus. The participation of parents, families and the community is a critical and essential part of the success of all our students.

    Beginning in fall of 2019, we will be providing Adult School courses in partnership with the Sequoias Adult Education Consortium offering the following Pathways:

    • English as a Second Language Educational Pathway:
      • To improve English speaking, reading, and writing
    • Basic Skills/High School Diploma/High School Equivalency Educational Pathway:
      • To improve Math and English basic skills, earn a high school diploma, or earn a high school equivalency

    For more information on our Sequoias Adult Education Consortium partnership and program offerings, please visit

    Please feel free to call or visit our front office if you have any questions or need more information on any of our educational programs or if you would like to know how to volunteer and participate in any of our student activities on campus.

    I look forward to a great school year at Deep Creek Academy for all students where “Knowledge is Power”.
