About Destiny Calling Academy

Destiny Calling Academy is honored to have a dream team of educators, specialists, and staff. A group of professionally educated, focused, and determined individuals eager to prepare your child's heart, mind, and life for a great destiny.  DCA is the school for your child (scholar)! DCA is a private school in Delaware, serving grades K-12, in a small classroom environment.  Providing instructions and supervision tailored to the right level for each scholar means less stress and more success!



The foundational magnet is the core practices that ground the educational experiences garnered within a school. It is also what attracts prospective parents and scholars to the school in search of specific needs or programs. DCA’s brand is holistic learning; the ability to educate the whole scholar and develop their academic skills as well as their social-emotional skills. The foundational magnet is Social-Emotional Learning-Behavior Academics (SEL-BA). Through our foundational magnet we understand that introducing and developing social-emotional/behavioral skills are equally important as improving scholar achievement.
