The Dayton Early College Academy is singularly focused on preparing urban learners to go to college and graduate.

DECA is an early college high school that offers Dayton Public School students a one-of-a-kind opportunity to excel academically and succeed in their goal of graduating from college. We offer a high-performing alternative to Dayton’s urban learners who want a bright future and are willing to work hard to achieve it. What distinguishes DECA from most urban high schools is the “we go to college” mindset of our students.
