Summer Program

Denver Academy's long-standing summer program has helped hundreds of students earn credits, master new skills, and participate in some good ole' fashioned summer fun. We offer academic classes and day camps as well as enrichment offerings. With two summer sessions and dozens of options, there's bound to be something that will fit your family's busy schedule. For students entering grades 1-12; DA and non-DA students are welcome.

For the 2017 Summer Program, we have academic offerings for elementary and middle school in two four-week sessions (June 12 - July 7 and July 10 - August 4) and one five-week program for high school students (June 12 - July 14). Day camp options (8 a.m. to 5:30 pm) are available during both four-week sessions for first through sixth grade. One week "quick hitter" classes offer fun and interesting activities for all ages.

We will then design a tutoring plan that meets the goals of the student and their parents. Denver Academy tutors use multi-sensory approaches, including but not limited to the Orton-Gillingham method. Tutoring at DA is $72.50 per hour.
