"...it feels like every single person at DA (admin to teachers) wants my child to succeed. It's just a special place."
Founded in 1972 on the maxim that students thrive when taught in the way they learn best, Denver Academy is one of the top schools in the nation dedicated to teaching diverse learners, including those with dyslexia and ADD/ADHD. DA’s innovative, proven learning model is based on the balanced application of classroom management, information processing, and academic literacy. Small class sizes of just 12-14 students facilitate differentiated instruction. Flexible placement and several academic levels within each core subject, including Honors classes and advanced coursework, allow faculty to teach to each student’s optimal level. Through this unique approach, students excel in their strengths while receiving the support they need in areas of challenge.

In this exceptionally positive learning environment, confidence grows as early successes are celebrated. Students are supported through a journey of self-discovery that helps them find their place in the world and realize their full potential. Denver Academy students graduate with a thorough understanding of their own strengths and learning styles. Prepared for a lifetime of success, more than 90 percent matriculate to college and post-secondary education each year.
