Thank you to our supporters!
DCI has received amazing support locally and nationally. We truly could not accomplish what we have without the support of these organizations and individuals who have donated time, resources and funds to the effort.
Building Hope has worked tirelessly to secure both a short term and permanent facility.
New Schools Venture Fund provided us with their Tier One, Day One Grant which has provided us funding to open as a high-quality school
DCI’s Member Schools’ leadership and staff have each contributed invaluable human capital and resources.
Choice Photography has provided expert photographic services for DCI’s events and materials.
Charter Board Partners has worked with us to build the capacity of our Board of Trustees.
And most important, a BIG thank you to the families and students of our member schools who believe in our mission and have been willing to live with the uncertainties that accompany the start of a new school!
Federal and State Government
Each Member School received a SOAR Replication and Growth grant from OSSE that is providing operating funds to help DCI with start-up funding.
