DAR Schools are promoted by the NSDAR. Most of these school began with a small group of children in disadvantaged areas where public education was not accessible. As improvement of roads and public education facilities occurred in these areas, the needs of the communities changed. The schools have grown into fully operational campuses, meeting the changing needs of their communities.

Today the DAR Schools encompass a variety of special needs programs including attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, adult literacy, and children in family crisis. The DAR also serves thousands of other eager students from pre-school through college who need a place to learn to fulfill their potential.

Each school is owned and controlled by a private, non-profit corporation in the state in which it is located.

The Colonel Joseph Winston Chapter, NSDAR  works most closely with supporting the following DAR and DAR Approved Schools:

Tamassee DAR School, Inc in South Carolina.

Crossnore Schools, Inc. in North Carolina.
