About Us

A Learning Community of Christian Excellence

Destiny Christian Academy (DCA) is an aspiring and vibrant educational community motivated by love and learning. Situated in Sacramento, one of America’s most important cities, DCA offers a student experience few others can. Our State Capital setting of commerce, government, and technology provides one of the finest missional learning incubators anywhere in the world. Everyone who works or learns at DCA considers it a great privilege.

Destiny Christian Academy is dedicated to producing students of promise who love the Lord. Our hope is to prepare remarkable young leaders who will live out their adult lives as a blessing to God and others. We want our students to develop the life-skills, vision, and humility to impact the world. DCA students, administration, staff, and faculty are all working together to achieve the dream of a Christ-centered school known for its academic excellence, spiritual vitality, and missional significance.

By design, DCA upholds high biblical standards for its students, faculty, staff, and administration. We are unapologetic in our pursuit of a culture marked by Christian maturity and high academic standards.

The founding convictions of Destiny Christian Academy are rooted in the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. For an educational community like DCA to flourish, its members must be committed to modeling Christ in a manner that will enhance spiritual growth and the common good. No matter what your starting point is spiritually you will be valued and loved. We want your relationship with Jesus Christ and your understanding of the Holy Spirit to grow while at DCA. Our students will be presented with a positive view of the Church and its vital role in the world.

Our School Motto is “Seek Ye First” and is based on Matthew 6:33.

“Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.”

A second core Bible verse that guides the entirety of our school is 1 Timothy 4:12.

“Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in faith, love, speech, conduct, and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.”

DCA is foremost a caring community that is committed to the physical, emotional, and social well-being of its students. Our campus community must be free from racial and ethnic discrimination in any form and safe from any form of sexual exploitation. We forbid any behaviors that may put our students at risk. DCA upholds a standard of honor and respect for the lives and heritage of all people. Bullying, racism, and sexual harassment in any form are forbidden at DCA and will result in strong corrective action. As a campus community we value prosocial behaviors as we seek to be an integral part of serving the needs of our neighborhoods and community.

As a DCA student you will be expected to practice good citizenship by having a healthy respect and appreciation for our country. You will be taught about the American struggle both past and present and how freedom in America came to be in hopes that you will live inspired throughout your adult life to access and promote America’s prosperity and goodness.

We expect our students to maintain a lifestyle of integrity and modesty. Plagiarism, cheating, theft and similar kinds of dishonesty are detrimental to campus excellence and are not allowed at DCA in any form.


DCA believes in the New Testament standards for human sexual behavior and will actively promote and teach these biblical standards for family and sexuality. A member of the DCA community (student, faculty, staff, and administration) may not engage in pre-marital or extra-marital sexual behavior; the Bible reserves sex exclusively for marriage between one man and one woman. Prohibited sexual behavior also includes the use of pornography. Our commitment as a school community to New Testament-affirmed sexuality includes respect for the sanctity of the body in accordance with God’s design for gender.

DCA believes and teaches that one’s birth sex is connected to the sanctity of the body in accordance with Scripture and that God created mankind in His image as either male or female. DCA is a pro-life learning community and will honor and teach that human existence begins at conception and continues throughout all stages of elderly life.

Cultivating physical and emotional wholeness in all areas of your life as a student is central to the academic experience at DCA. Gambling, profanity, possession or use of alcohol, tobacco products, marijuana, vaping, nonprescription drugs and abuse of prescription drugs are all prohibited both on and off campus.

You will, as a student or employee of DCA, be held accountable for your professionalism, academic effort and social behavior, but that accountability will always be guided by love and mercy. We are a Christian community full of grace that is working alongside students and parents to grow and develop young people into their maximum potential. We are all a work in progress.

As an aspirational Christian community, we expect everyone to respect these beliefs and not publicly disparage these beliefs (through social media or otherwise) while members of DCA. These beliefs are in accordance with our sponsoring denomination, the Assemblies of God. DCA has a rich and meaningful history as an ongoing organizational member of the Assemblies of God.

We are honored to have you as part of our DCA learning community.
