I am a student at Deland Preparatory Academy
I am responsible for my behavior
the results of my behavior
and what I become in life
Life does not accept excuses.
As a student at Deland Preparatory Academy
I will not let my need to be accepted by others
keep me from doing what is right.
I am different
I am unique.
There never has been and never will be
another person exactly like me.
When faced with a mountain, I will not quit
I will climb over, find a tunnel underneath,
or stand there and turn the mountain into a gold mine!
I will work hard each and every day
I will pay that price
to be the best person that I can be
