About Our School
DORAL ACADEMY NORTH CAROLINA
The nationally acclaimed Doral Academy Charter Schools is seeking to bring its educational programs to Wake County. By replicating its existing Doral Academy of Technology (DAT) K-8 School in Miami Florida, students in Wake County will have the opportunity to experience a rigorous academic education that allows them to seamlessly transition into high school. DAT aims to prepare students for high academic performance, stimulate their lifelong love of math and science and create new pathways for them to pursue academic and professional careers in the fields of Math, Science, Engineering and Technology. The school model is unique in that it places a premium on preparing students for advanced academic course work. Students have the opportunity to enroll in courses at a variety of levels in order to accommodate for their learning needs and educational aspirations. Students can even begin their high school coursework while in middle school and earn up to seven credits towards their high school graduation. In order to further prepare students for college, the school mandates that all middle school students enroll in a college readiness course that utilizes Naviance, a project based online educational program that assists students in achieving their personal college and career goals.
Doral Schools create an educational learning community where stakeholders are dedicated to promoting an exceptional educational experience with an obligation to ensure that students engage in a robust learning environment. Students receive hands on real world experiences through various courses and extracurricular activities led by instructors who have had years of professional experiences in their fields of study in Engineering, Sciences, and Mathematics.
The Doral Academy of Technology has been recognized by the Florida Department of Education as one of the highest performing schools in the state and has consistently been rated an “A” since its opening in 2011. In addition, the DAT has been nominated for and expects to receive its first National Blue Ribbon School designation by the United States Department of Education later this year in Washington DC. This will be the third Blue Ribbon earned by Doral Schools in the past four years.
