Founded in 1972, Denver Academy (DA) believes that students thrive when taught in the way THEY learn best. DA is one of the top schools in the nation dedicated to teaching students with varied learning profiles, including those with dyslexia and ADHD. Denver Academy is a co-ed independent day school with an innovative, proven learning model based on the balanced application of classroom management, information processing, and academic literacy. DA’s long-standing summer program is open to both DA and non-DA students each summer. Summer academic classes and camps have a maximum of 15 students which facilitates student-centered differentiated instruction. The program typically runs for four weeks in the summer and offers academic classes and day camps, as well as one-on-one reading tutoring using Denver Academy’s phonetics-based approach, and academic coaching on a range of subjects.
