You have an opportunity to become a part of this dream by investing in our students and becoming an influence in their success. Dream Center Academy wants to partner with you to build students into scholars. Your investment supports building generations of students who become college-and-career-ready graduates, and so much more.

Your tax-deductible investment of $42 a month ($500/year) will support a student along his/her journey through high school graduation.

In March 2020 we saw that our community was in need in wake of Covid-19, out of that need the vision our food pantry was born. This is a place that if an Academy family finds that they are in need we will do our best to make the resources available. This is one of the tangible ways you can partner with the academy is by donating can good and nonperishables. If you are interested in hosting a food drive or dropping off donations please contact us for more information.
