Imagine a school system in which every student graduates ready for a college and career. Our goal is to build a college-going culture based on early awareness, planning, preparation, and by nurturing in students the confidence to aspire to a post-secondary educational experience and the resilience to overcome challenges they may face along the way.
The DCHS Athletic Department supports our district College and Career Readiness vision as we want to help every student-athlete to use the mental, physical, social and emotional skills and lessons learned through healthy competition as a spring board into their future!
