Ready to Launch! DBA Prepares to Welcome First Students

  • by

Dietrich Bonhoeffer Academy is ready to open in August! Our first group of 6th and 7th grade students will enjoy a one of a kind opportunity to build a new school culture based on teamwork, imagination, and courage. We are so excited to launch an incredible learning experience with these young people!

This year, DBA students will benefit from a close-knit community that supports their personal and academic growth. Our small class size allows each young person to receive individual coaching to help them achieve their goals. A flexible schedule offers exciting learning opportunities unavailable at other middle schools. Also, our program is led by the enthusiastic Mr. Lerch, known for leading dynamic classes that change the lives of students.  

DBA is already building the ideal learning experience for each young person. New families receive a home visit to develop a personalized learning plan for their child. We have assembled a set of amazing courses that will engage and inspire a wide range of students. Looking ahead, we have an innovative first week of welcome activities to forge a strong team in the classroom.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer Academy exists through the contributions of an outstanding group of supporters. The Board of Directors provides strong oversight to lead the school forward into the future. We are also very grateful to the families who have made generous financial contributions towards the founding of DBA.

Spots are still available in our classroom for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If you are not confident that your 6th or 7th grade child will be successful in the classroom this year, please call or contact us at We offer a truly outstanding middle school education that will prepare your student for success in high school and beyond. We look forward to having you as part of our special community!
