OUR Mission

To inspire achievements in our youth so they can dream bigger, grow stronger, and reach their true potential.
We do this by building ROADS:

Denver Prep Academy – A Premier Athletic Institution

Raw talent, speed, and power are all important, but a player’s natural ability must be refined and focused. At DPA, an NCAA-approved institution (High School Code 852525), we guide athletes to greater and greater heights through our rigorous, professional program. From strength and endurance training to one-on-one coaching to membership in the elite Grind Session circuit, DPA athletes are given every advantage they need.

While we push hard at our Colorado school, we also always keep the student’s health and wellbeing in mind. From nutritional courses to mentoring to team building, we help our athletes strengthen themselves physically, mentally, and socially.

A Prep Academy with Innovative Education

Denver Prep Academy prides itself on our academic program. With a talented, creative, and focused teaching staff, students will not merely learn about history, the English language, science, and mathematics – they’ll discover why they’re fascinating subjects worth studying.

Our teachers are innovators, using creative educational strategies, tutoring, and mentoring to help students succeed. Students can also expect classes and programs about important social justice matters ­– diversity is essential to who we are at DPA.

Growing Together at Denver Prep Academy

We aren’t just a private school in Denver. DPA is here to transform the lives of our students. From our coaches to our teachers to our administrative staff, everyone at DPA wants to inspire achievement in our students. By inspiring achievement rather than merely teaching or coaching, our student-athletes develop the drive and focus they need to succeed in life.
