It is imperative that you look at your child’s progress in math this year and decide if your cadet should retake Algebra 1 in the 9th grade. Algebra 1 is the basis for all other math courses in high school and if you believe they have not gained all the prerequisite skills, we will honor your request to remain in Algebra 1 for the 2021-22 school year. These requests should be emailed to our Dean of Cadets, Amy Tocyloski.
2021 -2022 Academic Planning Info
DMA will be holding a virtual academic information night on March 29th at 6:30 pm. This program focuses on course options for all rising 10th, 11th, and 12th-grade cadets and their families. The meeting can be accessed here.
Here are the supporting documents for the Academic Information Night:
DMA’s freshman class is made up of cadets who have attended 30 different middle school programs. This creates a unique challenge as each of these programs follows a different curriculum. If your child is not placed in honors for freshman year, they will have the opportunity to move to honors in their 10th-grade year.
