Welcome to Dillard Academy



Dillard Academy will prepare all students to succeed in a global society by providing a diverse, collaborative, and technological, academic climate empowering 80% of students to be proficient by 2020.

To positively provide a safe and quality education so that we can excel and grow!

“Believe, Achieve, Succeed”
At Dillard Academy, we know that all children have potential.  Our students will achieve their goals and succeed in school and in life, because they are taught to believe in themselves.

“It takes a village to raise a child.”


Dillard Academy provides a program of academic excellence for students in Pre-K and Kindergarten through Grade 6 with special emphasis on remediation for the academically at-risk student and acceleration and enrichment opportunities for the academically gifted student.  The goal is to provide a supportive structure and an educational program of age appropriate activities that support character development and establish a strong foundation of physical, social, emotional, and intellectual capacities upon which lifelong learning can be built.  Each student is accessed and Individual Academic Plans are tailored to the child’s specific needs.  Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in the educational process both at home and in the school, to be supportive of school activities, and to spend a minimum amount of time in the school each month.  Teachers and parents share responsibility for student academic progress.  The academically at-risk population will be reduced by at least 50%.  The academically gifted population will thrive on a challenging program that will accelerate them beyond grade level.

Dillard Academy Charter School (DACS) has been open since 1998.  We are a non-profit, public charter school.  Tuition, transportation and meals are free at Dillard Academy.  100% of our teachers are NC Certified and Highly Qualified.
