Raising the Bar

Founded in 2003, the Delaware Military Academy is the only charter high school in the United States based on the traditions, values, and ideals of the U.S. Navy. Although academics are the backbone of any educational organization, leadership is the muscle of DMA. Cadets learn through a structured, traditional military school environment including self-discipline, motivation, and activities that enable our students to become productive citizens in a vastly changing technological society.

A Message from the Commandant

Seahawk Nation,
Due to the high positivity rate within our DMA community, we will be extending our winter breakthrough Tuesday, January 4th, and will be asynchronous beginning Wednesday, January 5th through the remainder of this week.

Work will be loaded into Schoology by 8:00 am and will be due by 3:00 pm each day. Work that is not completed will be marked zero and will affect your attendance. The plan is to return in in-person on Monday, January 10.
Going forward, DMA will be using a percentage model that we feel if reached will be detrimental to the health and safety of our staff and cadets. The percentage for cadets testing positive will be 8% in the same week. Should that occur, we will move to virtual for fourteen days or until that number declines below 8%. The threshold/percentage for our staff will be 10%. Should we reach this number we will move to virtual for fourteen days or until the number declines below 10%.

Athletic programs will continue with limited capacity.
Athletes testing positive will be referred to DPH for the proper guidance on whether a team can continue or have to shut down.

As of now, the guidance is not clear on how long students/staff must quarantine if testing positive for Covid, so until that is sorted out we will stick with the 10 day quarantine period. We expect to have some clarity around that topic in the next 24/48 hours. We also know that all the models predict the COVID numbers will increase greatly over the next 14 days so we are looking very closely as to the best plan of action over the next several weeks. For the time being, the state has deferred to the District/Charters to make their own decisions. Districts/Charters all have their own unique set of circumstances when determining what is best or for our particular District/charter. DMA is no different when it comes to the pandemic.
No one wanted to find themselves back in this situation, but the fact of the matter is we are and so is everyone else across the country. We don’t want to be extreme with our decisions but we also don’t want to be careless.

Please know we take all these decisions extremely seriously and want to do right by our cadets and families. We will continue to keep you informed every step of the way and look forward to when this is all something we can all say, remember when.
