DENVER ACADEMY CHANGES LIVES. Founded in 1972, Denver Academy (DA) believes that students thrive when taught the way they learn best. DA is one of the top schools in the nation dedicated to teaching students with diverse learning profiles, including dyslexia, ADHD and other learning differences. The 22-acre campus in Denver’s University Hills neighborhood is an exceptional learning environment. The robust curriculum includes challenging academics, technology, arts programs, athletics, character development, and extra-curricular offerings. Hands-on learning, engaging field trips and cultural experiences enrich each student’s education. DA’s innovative approach is based on the balance of classroom management, information processing and academic literacy. Small classes of 12-14 students facilitate differentiated instruction. Flexible placement in several academic levels within each core subject, including Honors classes, allow faculty to teach to each student’s optimal level. Students excel in their strengths and are equipped to overcome their challenges. At Denver Academy, we help all students realize their full potential.
