Our Mission is to give people a second opportunity to earn a high school diploma and empower them to realize their dreams of a fulfilling life.
Our Philosophy is that every adult can achieve academic success in the nurturing, encouraging, and supportive environment we provide.
Who we are. We are a state-of-the-art high school (grades 9-12) for adults 18 and older. We serve those who want a diploma but did not previously earn one and those who have not or cannot earn a G.E.D. or General Equivalency degree. Each student has a customized course of study. Classes are online and available around the clock to enable each student to work at his or her own pace on a schedule that suits them. Enrollment is year-round and previous high school credits are transferrable.
Our school was born in response to a community educational need for a second-chance high school. Dr. Joann Henry saw too many students drop out of public school and watched too few earn a G.E.D. She began organizing Dream Academy in 2010 to provide another option for students to meet the state standards for graduation. Under her direction, our nonprofit opened its doors in 2012 with its first five students. Today, Dream Academy continues its commitment to provide our students with a first-class education at the lowest tuition in the nation to assist them to realize their ambitions -- whether that means entering the workforce, competing for better positions, entering the military, enrolling in higher education programs or simply making themselves and their families proud.’
