Orientations provide you with more detailed information about DSST, and will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have. At orientation you will also receive your home visit date. The home visit is designed as a follow-up meeting conducted with your family to learn more about our Core Value commitment pledge and to address any lingering questions. Orientations have now passed for the 2018-19 school year, please contact the school to learn about make-up sessions.

Summer School

We are excited to have your child begin their path to college at DSST: Cole. Summer School is one of the most important program requirements that we have to facilitate students’ transition to high school.  Summer school for the middle school program at DSST: Cole will focus on creating a strong school culture, understanding expectations, and teambuilding. Students will also have classes in English and Math. Success in high school is a critical first step to ensure that 100% of the students are accepted into a 4-year college or university. 

Summer School is mandatory for all students accepted to DSST: Cole Middle School.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to starting our summer program on a strong note and preparing all students for success.
