SO ALL CAN SERVE
OUR MISSION, VISION, AND VALUES
The Dakar Academy school system was established in 1961 by United World Mission to serve the educational needs of missionary families living and working in Senegal and other parts of West Africa.
Today, DA schools welcome students from around the world, with diverse backgrounds and experiences, regardless of faith background or Christian ministry involvement. The heart of our mission as a school is captured in the phrase, So All Can Serve.
As a Christian educational institution, our vision is to produce well-rounded students, prepared for university-level studies, whose Christian worldview permeates all aspects of their lives. To that end, we strive to enable every child to:
Take personal responsibility for his or her faith and choose to follow Christ.
Grow strong in his or her spiritual walk.
Have an overview of God’s word and be able to see where God is at work personally and in the world at large.
Academically, physically, socially, spiritually and morally.
Integrate easily into a North American school system after leaving Dakar Academy.
Armed with necessary life skills for functioning as an adult after graduation.
Dakar Academy will enroll students without regard to color, race, religion or creed who either speak English as a native language or are able to obtain the Limited English Proficiency (LEP) level on the IDEA Oral Language Proficiency Test. LEP students are required to participate in DA's English as a Second Language (ESL) program.
