Mission: Denver Academy leads as a center of excellence for the education of students with learning differences. We help our students develop their intellectual, social, creative, physical, and ethical potentials within a nurturing environment so they may acquire the skills and confidence to be successful in life.

About the School: The school's curriculum is designed to meet the needs of children with learning differences (ADD, dyslexia) or other issues that lead to underachievement. 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 engagements are included in each lesson plan. The middle school offers a safe environment to help ensure both academic and social success. Our approach looks at the whole child, with a customized approach to traditional curriculum as well as a focus on the arts. Our high school program is designed to address the educational profile of each student to help them reach their academic potential. We offer several levels within each subject to allow students to excel in their areas of strength while addressing their areas of need. More than 90 percent of our graduates pursue post-secondary education.
