DMS Day Program

Day Program Option Gives Children a Chance to Succeed

At Dakota Memorial School, we help the most troubled, complicated, and amazing kids by providing best-in-class education where we look kids in the eye, walk with them, and help them become their best selves in this world and in Christ.

Dakota Memorial School has a limited number of openings for Day Students—students who are living at home but benefit from the highly individualized instruction we are able to provide.

Day Program

Many of our students experience academic success for the first time at Dakota Memorial School.

  • Students enrolled in the Dakota Memorial School Day Program are supervised at all times.
  • Teachers record daily progress of each student’s performance for progress reporting, program planning, and student accountability.
  • Students are encouraged to actively engage in academic and behavioral goal setting.
  • Daily feedback is provided so our students can track goal attainment, and ultimately success, toward transition.
  • Parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s schooling.

The admissions process at DMS includes the completion of an application packet, as well as the submission of education records, health records, and releases of information. You must also obtain a signed contract from the child’s school district of residence.

Dakota Memorial School does not discriminate in admission, employment, or administration of its programs based upon race, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or handicap.
