Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians of Destiny High School Students

I want to welcome you to the Destiny High School Family! While I am sad summer is ending, I am excited to start a new school year, and I am thrilled that you have partnered with us for the 2023-2024 school year. As a Cognia fully accredited high school, we are proud of all our past accomplishments; however, there is more work to be done to ensure our students experience another year of academic growth and transformational change in mind, body, and spirit. We can only do this through prayer and your consistent involvement, presence, and support. We value your input and feedback and look forward to nurturing a quality working relationship.

As we prepare for the upcoming school year, please pay special attention to each document in this packet and promptly return the necessary documents to the front desk.

Our focus for the 2023-2024 school year is to increase rigor in our instructional program. Our instructors will be working to ensure that high-quality, college-preparatory teaching and learning occurs in all subject areas through consistent staff development and professional development opportunities. These opportunities will allow our teachers to enhance their teaching skills to meet the diverse needs of our students. At Destiny, we expect our students to show demonstratable evidence of growth.

Destiny High School is also committed to maintaining a Christian atmosphere where standards of excellence are expected and upheld by all members of the learning community. In addition, our students will learn about and ultimately develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our theme for this year is "Created With A Purpose." Paul writes in Ephesians 2:10, "For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago". At Destiny, we believe every pupil has a purpose and plan mapped out by God. We will explore our theme throughout the year in our morning meetings and chapels.

Parents and guardians, for our partnership to be fruitful and effective, we need you to be active and willing participants in your student's school life. We expect parents to be responsive to school communications and to attend events like parent-teacher conferences. We expect all students to maintain consistent attendance and be in their first block classes by 8:20 – on time, on task, and ready to learn. Always keep the school updated with your new contact information, like phone numbers and addresses, to ensure you do not miss any essential communications from the school.

Destiny High School is deeply concerned about the safety and security of its students, staff, and visitors entering our building. To keep our school and community safe, ALL students and guests entering the building will walk through a metal detector and have their bags searched. These procedures are in place to ensure our students and staff remain safe.

Once again, thank you for choosing the Destiny family, and I look forward to meeting each of you throughout the school year. I pray that God will continue to bless you and your family for the remainder of the summer.
