We're Good News in Dayton! Listen Here.

Our Promise

Our promise is that all students will be reading at or above grade level by the end of the third grade - as this is the marker for future academic success. The staff of both DECA and DECA PREP will work together and with parents, community members and university partners to ensure a positive learning environment and student success.

Our Driving Vision

"We go to college" is the Dayton Early College Academy's mission and is the mindset of DECA PREP. We are a K-6 charter school which opened in August 2012.  DECA and DECA PREP will include all grade levels from Kindergarten through high school. DECA PREP serves students who reside within the geographic boundaries of the Dayton Public School District.
