Welcome to DREAM Technical Academy!
We are a tuition-free, 7th-12th grade public charter school for students in grades 7-12 that focuses on 21st Century Skills as part of our career and college preparedness objective. We use a project-based learning curriculum that is entirely student-driven.
A New Adventure in Education...
DREAM Technical Academy is ready to meet the academic needs of your child using a curriculum designed for students who enjoy learning by doing with a project-based learning focus. Our students drive their own education, by developing individual learning plans that suit their personal learning style, unique situation and focusing on the things they are most passionate about. By allowing student interests to drive their learning, there is a higher level of ownership, engagement, and hope. Our encouragement of critical thinking, exploration, and collaboration foster a lifelong love of learning that will follow our students on whatever path they choose next.
At DREAM we understand the importance of approaching learning and education in a way that considers the whole student. Unless a student feels safe and the needs related to physical, social, and emotional well-being are comfortably met, they cannot thrive at school. Our environment encourages autonomy, but also creates a sense of belonging by placing each student in a full-time advisory that is the best fit for them and giving them the power to be agents of change if they feel something is not right.
Preparing for our best future:
DREAM advocates for social justice and equity, with restorative practice, used whenever possible. We strive to ignite innate curiosity within our students, guiding them to be actively a part of their local and global communities so they will become lifelong leaders, learners, and engaged citizens. We know that building healthy relationships creates safe places where any student can actualize their ambitions and where hope is fostered. It is the right of all students and staff at DREAM to be accepted for who they are, where they are going, and to be supported in their personal journey to reach their destination.
