DAR and National Activities
The National Society supports two schools in the Appalachian region: Tamassee DAR School, Inc. in South Carolina and Kate Duncan Smith (KDS) DAR School in Alabama. Last year, DAR chapters raised nearly one million dollars to support these and other accredited schools, including:
- Crossnore School in North Carolina offers a stable, healing environment in a residential group setting for children from families in crisis.
- Hillside School in Massachusetts is an independent boarding and day school for eighty boys from varied backgrounds who are underachievers or who have been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder.
- Hindman Settlement School, located in Kentucky, specializes in educating students with dyslexic characteristics.
- Berry College in Georgia is one of the outstanding comprehensive colleges in the South. The college offers fully accredited art, science, and professional programs, as well as specialized graduate programs in education and business administration.
Additionally, the National Society assists in the education of Indian youth through scholarships and support of Bacone College in Oklahoma and Chemawa Indian School in Oregon.
