Vision, mission and values

Vision

Our vision is to improve student achievement, develop character, create an academic culture and raise aspirations by ensuring daily practices are outstanding.

Mission

Our mission is that students leave here saying:

"At DAA, I developed good moral principles and achieved exceptional outcomes that allowed me to have ambitious life choices."

Values

We have three academy values that we live by each day:

Happiness - the joy of life and learning 
Industry - hard work and resilience 
Responsibility - always doing the right thing, taking control and being accountable for one’s actions

Keys to Success

Students will learn that the ‘Keys to Success’ are:

Self-determination - the desire to succeed and shape one’s destiny 
Mastery - the command of knowledge or skills in a particular subject or activity - ‘Wanting to get better’ 
Purpose - reaching for the Stars
