Can parents visit while the student is in DLA?
We invite parents to be involved in what God is doing with students during their year at DLA. We welcome you to visit any time and take part in their year of transformation.

If my student takes a year before going to college, is that okay?
We recognize your concerns; the time a student spends at DLA will not only prepare them for the future through personal development, but they will have a clear vision for the calling God has for them. They will walk into college with purpose and direction as opposed to changing majors multiple times.

How many students attend DLA?
DLA is home to between 40-70 students depending on the year.

Why are there rules like "no dating"?
The structure of DLA is designed to create an atmosphere of radical growth. All of the rules and structures are established with this purpose in mind and are intended to help each student develop into a leader in passionate pursuit of God. Some of the rules, such as "no dating," are guidelines set up to help first year students focus completely on God and avoid distractions in their pursuit of growth.

What is DLA's belief about the Bible?
We align our beliefs with The Nicene Creed and New Life Church's statement of Faith

Is DLA accredited?
DLA is currently not an accredited institution. However, each year we seek to partnership with online and local schools to give students options to accrue college credit during their time in DLA.

How often can students go home?
We will have designated weekends for students to travel home for vacation if they desire to do so. Students may take time off for special circumstances (a death in the family, serious illness, or a wedding). These and additional time away dates should be planned and approved with a staff member well in advance when possible.

Can my student have a job outside of DLA?
Yes! 1st year students are permitted to work between 10-15 hours a week beginning in mid-October. They must get approval from DLA staff before accepting a job to ensure that it won't interfere with the program. Before mid-October, students may pick up small odd jobs on their time off if they would like (ex: babysitting for a night, mowing lawns, etc.) Students in the program who are taking classes for credit outside of DLA are strongly advised to not add consistent work to their schedule.

Where do Full time DLA students live while they are in the Program?
1st and 2nd year full time students live on New Life's campus in dorm rooms. Part time students are expected to find their own housing.

If I am from Colorado Springs can I continue to live with my parents as a fulltime 1st year student?
We ask that all 1st year students live in our resident housing.
