Academic Excellence

In addition to following a college preparatory curriculum, DA offers AP and dual credit classes to students interested in taking college-level courses, and opportunities to earn college credit through CLEP examinations. High school classes are taught by qualified teachers and class sizes are small to ensure students receive the guidance they need to be successful in their studies. AP classes are weighted, with an A totaling 5.0 GPA points. 

87% of DA's AP students score 3, 4, or 5 on AP exams.
