Dakota Adventist Academy

Whether your goal is a career in construction or auto repair, or you just want to get your hands dirty while learning more about how things are made, DAA's automotive technology and construction vocational classes are a great chance to hone your skills.


Mr. Peterson, our vocational education teacher, is a pro at carpentry and auto repair, and he makes his classes fun and full of real hands-on learning. While other schools are phasing out vocational classes, DAA knows that these courses offer skills and lessons students will use for the rest of their lives, whether or not they pursue careers in the trades.


Construction courses include introductions to basic building materials and methods, the proper use of tools, and the construction of a tiny house. Students can even take part in the annual SkillsUSA conference each spring. Automotive Technology students learn how to care for and repair vehicles, and students who complete Automotive Technology II take the ASE Certification test.  Check out the most recent Construction 1 class project - the motorcycle shed - by clicking here!
