DART (short for Detroit Country Day Academic Regular Tournament) is a series of high-school charity housewrites produced by the Detroit Country Day School starting in 2019. All proceeds went toward the Red Cross and Gleaner's Food Bank, a local Detroit-based institution that helped fight hunger during the COVID-19 pandemic.


The first DART was mirrored starting in January 2021. It was head-edited by DCDS alum Christopher Gilmer-Hill, and written by the DCDS team with help from subject editors Jon Suh, Sarod Nori, Jakob Myers, John John Groger and Jason Golfinos. The target difficulty was high-school regular, which it was perceived to have somewhat overshot. Compared to other mACF sets, the distribution featured more geography, current events and trash, and less religion and mythology – a sort of middle ground between the ACF and NAQT distributions.


The second iteration of the set was first mirrored in September 2021. It was head-edited by DCDS captain Arthur Gayden with help from Christopher Gilmer-Hill, and was produced in collaboration with Troy High School as well as a pool of guest writers recruited through an open application process. Subject editors were Steven Liu, Eric Yin, Arjun Nageswaran, Zaid Siddiqui, Dylan Bowman, Adam Sun, Sarod Nori, Daniel Ma, Jon Suh and Jason Golfinos. Unlike the previous year's set, DART II was targeted at regular-plus difficulty. It kept largely the same distribution as DART I.
