Join us in giving thanks for 10 YEARS of God???s grace!

INSPIRED BEGINNINGS

Although Divine Savior Academy opened its doors in 2004, the story of our school actually began six years prior. In 1998, Pastor Carl Leyrer, our current Senior Pastor, accepted the position to lead a small church in Miami. Without a permanent building, this small group worshiped in various conference rooms and office spaces. In 2001, the church purchased land on 58th Street in Doral and began planning for its own building and school. After many obstacles and challenges, Divine Savior Church opened Divine Savior Academy in 2004 with 26 students in the eight classrooms of what is now the Early Childhood Wing of DSA.

ABUNDANT BLESSINGS

To say that Divine Savior Academy has been blessed is an understatement. Because of God???s grace, both our church and our school have experienced extraordinary growth in the last 10 years, as evidenced by these numbers:

2004

  • 26 students
  • 8 classrooms
  • Kindergarten to 3rd Grade

2014

  • Over 540 students
  • 31 classrooms, gymnasium, library
  • PreK to 12th grade

From chess club to high school boys soccer, National Honor Society to school musicals, archery to robotics, and so much more, Divine Savior Academy also offers many opportunities for its students to explore their God-given talents. In the past year, DSA has produced its first National Merit Scholar Semifinalist, a District Volleyball Championship, and a National Championship Chess Team.

EXCITING PLANS

Divine Savior Academy has exciting plans for the future: ??an entirely new high school on our existing campus. This stand-alone building will be located to the north of our current campus on an adjoining 7.75 acres of land. Our new high school will have 23 classrooms, 4 science labs, an outdoor classroom, a high school gymnasium, a weight room, media center, chess room, dance studio, art rooms, music labs and more.?? This addition to our campus will also have 4 tennis courts, a soccer/football field, more playground area, and over 200 more parking spaces???huge blessings for our entire school to enjoy! God-willing, the new addition will open its doors for the 2015-2016 school year.

Join us in prayer as we move forward with these exciting plans!
