Denver Academy Parent Association (DAPA)

Welcome, Denver Academy Parents!

When your child enrolls at DA, you become a member of the Denver Academy Parents Association (DAPA). DAPA helps create a vibrant campus for all of our students, enriching the DA community and experience for students and parents. Below, please learn about our goals and our role at DA. 

Promoting Community - Our aim is to ensure an inclusive and supportive environment at Denver Academy. Activities we sponsor to reach this goal include the All-School Picnic, First Day Coffee, Grandparent’s Day and Parent Support Groups.

Enriching Student Life - We provide social and academic experiences for students in partnership with DA faculty. This also includes our After Prom event that provides high school students with a safe and fun place to celebrate when Prom is over. Booster Club supports DA athletes and athletic programs.In addition, we create school spirit through our Mustang Connection (high school), Herd (middle school) and Ponies (elementary school) programs. 

Supporting Faculty and Staff - DAPA works to show our amazing faculty and staff how much we appreciate their dedication to our kids by hosting several social events for them throughout the year.

Enhance DAPA Funding - Please sign up for our grocery gift card program. It costs you nothing extra and DAPA will earn 5 percent of every dollar spent to enhance programs and activities for our kids! We will provide you with FREE reloadable cards for King Soopers and Safeway. Vitamin Cottage cards are also available. To sign, or to receive additional cards, please call DA alumni parent, Anne Davis Pluss at 303-322-8587. 

Our home base on campus is the DAPA house located at the corner of Iliff and Birch Streets. Drop in for coffee Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 7:45-8:30 a.m. (after student drop off). Denver Academy Parent Association meetings are also held here (the 3rd Thursday of each month at 8:00 a.m.).
