Why online education?
Students today lead lives that revolve around technology. They are often adept navigators of the tools that make the worldwide spread of information possible.
This technology also allows students to become engaged in their own education in a new way. The same core and elective subjects are taught at eDCSD, but students can experience a new ownership of what they learn.
Online education also offers greater flexibility than traditional schools.

- The chance to study and learn from anywhere
