DESA's Vision and Mission
At Dallas Environmental Science Academy, our mission is to develop the foundation of a scientific workforce that will protect and sustain our environment today and for future generations.
DESA offers a stimulating, hands-on educational program for middle school students. The curriculum prepares students in core competencies that are directly correlated with college and workforce readiness. These include critical thinking and problem solving, data analysis, initiative, collaboration and teamwork, presentation skills, imagination and curiosity, and leadership.
The curriculum is enriched with real-world applications and field experiences. Students visit colleges and universities, participate in engineering engagements and other academic competitions, and work with environmental agents.
