Elementary School

At Denver Christian Academy, our teachers demonstrate the love of Christ each day by encouraging every child to unlock what God has uniquely created them to be. Our elementary curriculum is individualized to offer each child the opportunity to succeed before moving to the next stepping stone, regardless of the academic level. Through activities that involve problem solving, scientific exploration, creative expression, and literacy development, children will be able to grasp concepts more quickly. We strive to incorporate the truth of God’s Word and a biblical worldview throughout every subject in our core curriculum. This allows children to develop their relationship with Christ and lay a strong foundation for their future success. We believe that incorporating these teaching strategies in an environment that is structured, affirming, engaging, and nurturing will allow the love of Jesus to shine through and transform the lives of each child.
