our mission

“Caring for the whole child to cultivate productive members of society."

At Dorsey Attendance Center, we strive to have a climate of high expectation and success in an orderly environment where students feel safe and valued. Our top priority is student achievement through curriculum which are empowering, challenging, and quickly adaptable to new technologies in our ever-changing society. We want each student to set goals, to assume personal responsibility for those goals, and to know that he or she has the ability to learn and be successful.

At DAC, we BELIEve...

Every student has the right to a quality education.

High expectations and hard work, driven by a positive vision, are necessary in order to achieve desired results.

Each person and activity in the school must support the best interest of the students.

Willingness to change for the sake of continuous improvement is necessary.

Education is the most important investment in our future, individually and communally.

It was this set of beliefs that established our sense of purpose.
