About Us

Denver Academy is one of the leading schools for diverse learners in the United States. Our unique program model—one that has been implemented in schools in the U.S. and Canada—respects each student’s individual learning profile. The school's curriculum is designed to not just accommodate, but to enrich, the educational experience for children with learning styles (ADD, dyslexia) that are not typically honored in the traditional American classroom. 

In the Elementary School, we offer a structured and nurturing environment, with a tailored approach to help each child build a foundation of basic skills and academic success. Creativity and engagement are included in each lesson plan. The Middle School offers a safe environment to help ensure both academic and social success. Our model looks at the whole child. Our High School program is designed to address the educational profile of each student to help them reach their full potential. We offer several levels within each academic subject to allow students to excel in their areas of strength while addressing their areas of need. More than 90 percent of our graduates continue to post-secondary education.

Never before have I experienced educators so willing to go so far out of their way to positively impact the lives of my children in creative, flexible, effective and meaningful ways. -- DA Parent
