The mission of DREAM Academy is to promote an environment that is dedicated to challenging our students academically, while also meeting their social and emotional needs through meaningful and deliberate interactions in a safe and nurturing environment.
The DREAM Academy is an alternative educational program at School District U-46. The purpose of the new setting is to give students an educational option to maximize their individual potential.
The DREAM Academy provides a small school environment, featuring smaller class sizes in a structured setting with a student-centered curriculum. The average class size will range between 18-20 students per class. Semester classes with a blended curriculum include small group instruction and online curriculum.
Students must be referred to the DREAM Academy from the comprehensive schools in the District. Students are selected to The DREAM Academy for a variety of reasons, such as: social, emotional, and academic reasons that have made it difficult for them to learn in the traditional school environment.
An Open Entry/Open Exit is provided throughout the school year and monthly intakes will take place the first Tuesday of every month.
School hours: 9:00 a.m. to 3:05 p.m.
