Candice - Dayspring Academy
I went to DSA for my senior year of high school, but the students and staff all made me feel like I had been a part of the school's community for much longer. Each of the teachers were attentive to the specific needs of every individual student and left me with more tools for success than I could have hoped for. I will always be grateful for being able to leave high school knowing I had a group of people who were rooting for me!
Gracie - Dayspring Academy
The teachers and faculty at DSA helped me understand many challenging subject areas and explore my full potential. I am thankful to have had many unique experiences in high school that prepared me well for my future in college. Go shires!
