The Director’s Message
Welcome to Dartford Excelsior Academy, on online school that is re-invigorating the delivery of high-quality home school education to young people around the world.
Steeped in a solid British academic tradition, we are pushing the boundaries of education through our commitment to excellence combined with our commitment to internationalism. We aim to nurture young people that both understand the world and wish to shape it.
Our unique use of the tutorial system and dedication to compassionate teaching, aims to place our students at the centre of their own educational journeys. We want to empower our young people with the skills and intellectual capacity to empower their worlds for themselves.
At the heart of our approach to education is our distinctive DE Method approach to teaching. The principle features of the DE Method are:
- a commitment to excellence and a commitment to the active nurturing of excellence in our students;
- the prioritisation of the building of confidence and the nurturing of academic resilience in our students;
- the employment of a ‘first principles’ approach to knowledge acquisition that empowers students to develop a robust understanding of the syllabus;
- the implementation of a collaborative feedback loop through which attained knowledge is organically compounded and retained.
I am delighted that you are considering enrolling your child at the Academy. Please continue to explore the website and sign up for our Information Session during which you will have the opportunity to learn a little bit more about us.
