DCCA (Dallas County Collegiate Academy) was established in August 2017 as an umbrella school for qualified home schooled high school students to provide dual credit classes through DCCCD. DCCA started with a handful of co-op schooled students and now has grown to offer this service to any qualified home schooled high school students in Texas!
Our vision is to provide home schooled students a path to success through the dual credit program which is an early introduction into college culture, mastering college level courses, working towards an associate’s degree or transferring to a 4 year University! The state of Texas initiative is helping students achieve this goal. The Texas state initiative is to have 60% of all high school aged students enrolled in dual credit classes by 2030!
DCCA is located in Rowlett, Texas and has partnered with Life Message (a non-profit organization that offers support to Dallas County residence through food bank, clothing, mental services, social services, and assistance in many areas). We have many service projects and volunteer opportunities offered through Life Message. Students attending DCCCD campus or online are not required to attend any DCCA campus classes.
DCCA will provide the high school level guidance and support for each home school student while representing the student as the high school official with the college. Parents will still have the main role as "Principal" of their home schooled student.
