An Alternative Choice to Public Education

Dixie County Learning Academy

Most children know the feelings of: Reading and/or Math as struggles, extreme frustrations, "shut downs" and "stop trying" resulting in learning/ behavior problems.

DCLA's program is based on helping those children by providing a family oriented environment with authentic learning, academic achievement and practical life skills.
