After much anticipation, groundbreaking has begun on the new security fence this week. This security fence is Dallas Academy's most significant campus upgrade, putting a priority on student and staff safety. Thanks to a generous grant from the Hillcrest Foundation, we have begun Phase 1 which includes the installation of the fence around the perimeter and a security gate at the front entrance. Phase II includes additional fencing around the back of the property and an electric gate at the exit of the back parking lot. We are still in need of additional funding to complete Phase II. Contributions to the Annual Fund this year will be designated to Phase II of the project.
