Our School and Safety Plan

Our School: Digital Arts & Technology Academy (DATA) is a fully accredited, four year, tuition-free academy. Students are able to learn about digital arts and technology from faculty with a high level of expertise; and our small student population and student-to-teacher classroom sizes mean our students get individualized attention and assistance from each teacher, all day long. We produce graduates that are academically well-rounded, goal-oriented and possess the essential life skills needed to achieve their college and career goals.

At DATA, students earn a full high school diploma while also having the opportunity to earn college credits in several courses. We take full advantage of our access to cutting-edge technology and close ties with CNM’s technical programs to give our students uniquely rewarding educational opportunities. We also have small classroom sizes, which means students have the benefits of a private school experience without the cost.
