Join a nurturing and collaborative community of parents, teachers and students as we create a unique learning experience that is personalized for each student.


First established as a micro school in 2019, Dream Tech Academy has grown into an established private school in Hopewell, VA. Here, we meet students where they are and provide the support they need to excel academically.

Our Vision

We believe that all students are unique and so their learning experiences should be unique. Every student will achieve personal growth and their success will be measured by how far they have come and not against their peers.

Academics

Elementary students participate in classes with as little as 5 students per class. This small group learning style allows us to really focus on the individual child, identifying their strengths and weaknesses to create a more personalized learning experience.


Coursework includes math, reading comprehension, writing, phonics, science and history. Students also participate in Spanish classes, typing, music, art and physical education classes.

With an average class size of 10 students, our middle schoolers participate in courses designed to challenge them in the core subjects areas.


Students are expected to complete monthly projects in history and science. As part of our model to personalized learning for students, math and writing labs are built into student schedules, offering ample opportunities to hone skills in mathematical concepts and to improve writing abilities.

Finally, students in grades 6-8th can choose from a list of interest classes each marking period as an elective. Some favorites are cooking and sewing.

High School

( 9th-12th grade)

Elementary School

( K-5th grade)

Middle School

( 6th-8th grade)

At the high school level students work independently with teacher support and teacher-set deadlines. Coursework in Algebra 1, 2 and Geometry are taught live. All of our High Schoolers must enroll concurrently at a Community College in their Junior and Senior Years.

We encourage and give our high schoolers the opportunity to take and earn college credits through early college enrollment, ACE credits and/or CLEP credits. High Schoolers also participate in the ACT test.


Students can earn a General Diploma (20 credits) or Distinguished Diploma (22 credits). Most students take between 5-6 credits per year leading to graduation in as little as 3 years.
