What is Our Brand and Foundational Magnet?

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
