  • The Desert Learning Academy ("DLA") established in 2015 as a "hybrid" school, serves students in grades 4-12, and is part of the Palm Springs Unified School District. A hybrid school environment combines online learning and on-campus instructional support. Student independence adjusts based on an individual's grade level and academic success. All students use online curriculum as their primary source of instruction. Teachers support students in their learning through guided goal setting and mentoring. All students are expected to achieve college readiness and/or career preparation. For family convenience, DLA has two separate campuses to serve students. The main campus is located in Palm Springs. An additional campus is located in Desert Hot Springs. Students may attend the campus most local to them, a campus of their choice, or a combination. DLA is a personalized educational program which adapts to fit individual student needs.
