WHY THE DEVYNE STEPHENS ACADEMY?
Simply put, we’re different. We pride ourselves on academic excellence and therefore offer an extremely challenging, fully accredited and innovative academic curriculum and progressive academic credit recovery program for scholars.
We believe that developing well-rounded scholars will position them to have a better quality of life. Therefore, we promote participation in student life activities like Performing Arts, Athletics, and STEAM Leadership to produce a well rounded scholar.
Athletics & Sports
Classes begin each weekday at 8:00 A.M., and classes meet for 60-120 minutes. During the 60-minute specials, there is a built-in constructive time period when students study, do homework, take make-up examinations, and meet with teachers.
Constructive time for academic work is also structured into the after-school program. Students work independently, in small groups, or with assigned peer tutors. In addition, if a student at any time falls below 70% in any course, she will be placed on Academic Support status. This mandates that even more study time and assistance will be made available on weekends and evenings.
