WHY MANY CHOOSE DREAM
“Where serious people go to broaden their minds and learn to live the rest of their lives.”
This sentence encapsulates our educational mission here at DREAM. We aim to build a community of learners who are dedicated to expanding their experiences and challenging ideas that are taken for granted. By supporting and encouraging each other in our day to day learning, we will be shaping the next generation for active participation in our democracy. Through this growth, students will learn the skills necessary to be successful individuals in a rapidly changing future!
“I love that DREAM allowed me to be myself, which allowed me to find myself. I feel like DREAM has really made me ready to be an adult and have a successful career and life.”
