"This is a place to Discover your Destiny and Develop that Discovery." - Dr. Wiley Hughes
We believe that a small caring community of diverse, highly-trained professionals working with students who seek to develop a passion in life creates the ideal learning environment. Young people have curious minds, tremendous energy, innate talent and incredible spirit all waiting to be awakened and nurtured. We respect research suggesting that students can reach full potential in analytical thinking, creative expression, and civic responsibility only when the walls of the traditional classroom are extended beyond the school facility. Whether in the classroom or pursuing extracurricular passions, our students are actively engaged in learning as accomplished scholars and artists.
DNA will embody and promote the spirit of individual excellence through the highest quality teachers, broad based family and community support, and programs that are biblically based. DNA will be the alternative school of choice enabling children to reach their full potential and perform successfully on standardized testing at the national level. DNA will become a model school for educating children regardless of their current academic and social status. As a result, Destiny Now Academy will become a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School that will provide the community with its leaders and productive citizens of the future.
