Besides the academic program that the Communications Academy provides, students have the opportunity to join the Communications Club! The club meets weekly and students are able to:

  • have fellowship with other academy students of various grades
  • participate in school club events like club olympics and the homecoming day parade
  • get more experience with various Adobe products
  • work on contests and programs that require additional time
  • get tutoring from other students related to various academy classwork

The Communications Club participated in the 2015-2016 Homecoming Day parade in DeLand. Students worked tirelessly on a float that illuminated the DHS bulldogs stomping on the Spruce Creek Hawks!
