DSA???S HIGH SCHOOL GRAND OPENING on AUGUST 11th at 7pm
Divine Savior Academy is excited to announce that its new high school and athletic facilities expansion is complete. The Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening reception will be August 11th from 7:00-9:00pm at DSA???s new high school building located at the intersection of NW 58th Street and NW 104th Avenue in Doral. The community is invited to attend this event.
Although the building and athletic facilities are new, Divine Savior Academy???s high school is not. The Academy graduated its most recent class in May. The Class of 2015 included a National Merit Scholar, a Gates Millennium Scholar, a nationally-acclaimed chess team, and a host of scholar-athletes.
This fall, DSA alumni are headed to many prestigious colleges and universities like MIT, the University of Miami, Vanderbilt, George Washington University, the University of Michigan, and Cornell University, an Ivy League school. The class received $1.4 million in scholarships and financial awards.
Success like this speaks not only to the incredible talent of these students, but also to Divine Savior Academy???s rigorous curriculum. Accredited by five institutions, the Academy provides college-prep academics, a supportive college guidance program, and a small teacher-to-student ratio to help its students achieve their college goals.
With the needs of families in mind, Divine Savior began its third expansion last summer: a stand-alone high school and athletic expansion. The new high school building and expanded athletic facilities will not just serve the needs of DSA???s high school students. The expanded playground, tennis courts, and soccer fields will meet the needs of the entire PreK3-12th grade program. The dance studio, gymnasium, and chess room will also be shared spaces. Other areas of the high school like the STEM labs, video production lab, and media center will be exclusive to 9th to 12th grade students.
Pastor Carlos Leyrer, Superintendent of Divine Savior, comments, ???When designing the building, we were careful to meet two needs: the need of more space for the entire school and the need for our high school students to have a space of their own. We are very conscious of providing our 9th-12th grade students with a complete high school experience, which includes privileges and programs specifically designed for their academic, social, and extracurricular needs.???
Always looking to expand, DSA has added two new prestigious programs to its academic offerings: the Advanced Placement Capstone Program and the Project Lead the Way STEM Program. With an eye on the needs of the diverse population of Doral, the school is also excited to introduce its English Language Learners program for students new to the English language. This unique program helps students become fluent in the English language, transition to regular classrooms, and graduate in the same four years as traditional students.
With academics as the strong foundation of every student???s high school career, DSA also seeks to give its students a well-rounded education in the arts, athletics, and extracurricular opportunities, as well.
???At DSA, we are focused on two goals. The first is to provide our students with an excellent education. The second is to foster a caring, supportive, Christian community so that families have the resources they need to be happy and healthy. These new facilities will help us achieve both goals,??? comments DSA Head of Schools, Ben Troge.
