Desoto County Academy Ratings & Reviews

Glorified daycare. Terrible experience at this school, not so much with the teachers, but with the administration. Here’s what to expect:Your child will be watching movies daily at DCA. NOT learning videos-Power Rangers, Paw Patrol, and full Disney movies. Teachers have Netflix hardwired right to the rooms, and they let the students pick what they watch every day. During snack time, nap time, lunch time, any time that should be used to develop social skills. It’s a babysitter while teachers grade papers. It’s on in the aftercare room with children crowded around it in a dark room, instead of playing outside on a beautiful afternoon. My children would come home bonking themselves on the head after watching LooneyTunes, and got in trouble for copying behavior they’d seen on tv. First thing my kids told me about when they came home each day was what movie they watched. Nothing about math, science, friends…just movies. I paid for this. I called, emailed, wrote a letter to the “board”. NO ONE ever replied. What kind of “Christian” school completely ignores a parent’s concerns? DCA is merely a business.DCA has almost no outdoor time for young children if it’s sunny, between 40-70 degrees, and hasn’t rained in the last 5 days. Absolutely none for older kids. Nothing. Stuck in a tiny room all day long. My children came home restless every day. When asked if they had recess, I heard, “the ground was wet.” Or “My teacher was too cold”. Unbelievable that DCA functions like this. DCA’s motto is “It’s a privilege to go our school.” I disagree. It’s a privilege to teach our children.There are better schools just down the road. Please don’t let this school be your final decision unless your goals include memorizing the theme song from Pokemon.

Wonderful school with well qualified teachers and staff. My daughter has thrived in the environment. They are accredited and pending further accreditation.

DCA is a very unprofessional school. They aren't accredited but will tell you they are. They also use out of date and copied achievement tests for their end of year testing. Public schools and colleges do not recognize DCA as a school at all. To be accepted into a college or another school from DCA, you must take a placement test because they won't even look at report cards from there.

My kids first year here is almost complete! They have done very well and have enjoyed their new school. The teachers have been very helpful to my kids and they seem to really care about them. We will be back next year! - L.W.

We have enjoyed the change from public schools. My kids are less stressed and very happy! They were ready to go back to school in the middle of spring break! I think that says something.
