Ben Altman Scores Perfect 36 on ACT

Congratulations to Ben Altman who earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36!

Fewer than half of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2020, only 5,579 out of 1.67 million students who took the ACT earned a top composite score of 36. (We had a member of the DCA Class of 2020 earn a 36 as well!)

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1–36. A student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. The score for ACT’s optional writing test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.

“Earning a top score on the ACT is a remarkable achievement,” said ACT CEO Janet Godwin. “A student’s exceptional score of 36 will provide any college or university with ample evidence of their readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.”

The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam that measures what students have learned in school. Students who earn a 36 composite score have likely mastered all of the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in first-year college courses in the core subject areas.

ACT scores are accepted by all major four-year colleges and universities across the US.

We are so proud of you Ben!

DCA Mourns the Loss of Teacher and Alum

It is with a very heavy heart that I need to inform you that Mr. Benjamin Pugh, a middle and high school Social Studies teacher, a coach in our community, and a member of the class of 2009 passed away on July 2, 2021.  Mr. Pugh was diagnosed in June with germ cell cancer and was hospitalized a week later

due to a cardiac event that he suffered.  As a result, he was in an induced coma as the doctors worked to stabilize his condition.  Although we trust that Mr. Pugh has gone on to be with the Lord, this is certainly a sudden and difficult passing for the family and our community.  Please be in prayer for his family during this difficult time.

As memorial service arrangements become available, we will notify the DCA community of those details.  We will also communicate further information when appropriate.

Blessings,

Keith M. Singer

Business Advertisement and Athletic Sponsorship

Dear DCA Families, 

With the upcoming school year quickly approaching, it will not be long before we are all back on campus. One of the special opportunities we have to gather as a community takes place on Friday nights with our football games. As part of this experience, we have a football program available to celebrate our students and school.         

Business Advertisement and Athletic Sponsorship forms are attached. If your business would like to advertise in the program or be a sponsor, please fill out the form. Also, let us know if you are connected to another business that might like to support our school. Advertising too everyone who attends our football games can provide valuable exposure for businesses while also supporting DCA students and coaches. 

The forms have all the information you will need for your advertisement. The forms should be returned to DCA and marked to the attention of "Football Program". Feel free to contact me at dgoodwin@dcawildcats.org with any questions. Thank you for considering this exciting opportunity to support DCA.                    

Sincerely,
