Welcome to New Directions Academy. The school serves as Dickson County Alternative School for students in grades K-12. In addition, students may elect to serve an out of school suspension at NDA in order to complete class assignments and be counted as present.
Our mission at New Directions Academy exists to provide students a short term learning environment free from distractions. Our goal is to assist students in maintaining or exceeding current academic levels of performance until such time as they return to their school.
