The mission of Dare County Alternative School is to instruct and assist at-risk students so they may be successful, both as students and individuals. Our school strives to encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning and behavior so they may develop the skills and habits needed to be successful in school and life.

To accomplish our mission, DCAS seeks to provide a safe and secure educational environment that allows students to either successfully complete requirements for graduation from DCAS or meet their personalized educational plans in order to transition to a regular public high school.
