"Denver Academy has been a huge part of our family’s life. My nephew, Charlie, is a 1st grader at DA and is the 3rd generation of our family who is a part of the school. Additionally, my daughter, Kaylee, participated in tutoring at DA and because of that experience is now reading on grade level. As a student myself, I can say without hesitation that DA saved my life. Had it not been for the teachers at DA believing in me, I would not be where I am today. Nearly 25 years after graduating, I continue to be involved as a volunteer, and our family continues to financially support the school because we believe in the mission and want other families to feel the impact we have.
The 50th Anniversary Building on Excellence Campaign is incredibly exciting. The new facilities will promote school pride and enhance DA’s great programs. Additionally,  through a larger endowment fund, we are ensuring that teachers are compensated for their extraordinary work and that future generations of students can experience the same Denver Academy magic that I experienced as a student. Thank you all for being a part of this exciting time at DA!"
