Promoting DACC

Parents - if you feel strongly about telling others what a great education your student is getting at DACC, we want to hear from you. We are looking for current and past parents to provide written testimonials and a few parents to come in for a video interview. If you are interested in helping us with this project, please contact our Public Relations Coordinator at
