What parents are saying about Arma Dei Academy
Open Houses are the first Wednesday of the month (November – May). See first-hand the educational environment, and discover the nurturing, Christ-centered culture at Arma Dei Academy. We encourage you to take the first step in making the best choice for your family, and RSVP to attend our Information Open House.
You will have an opportunity to observe classes, experience the joyful environment of our school, browse through curriculum, speak with teachers and administrators, and ask questions of current parents about how Arma Dei Academy might be a good fit for your family.
My little 5 year old started her first experience with school! She had a couple rough weeks getting started, but with the help and direction from the BEST TEACHER EVER, my daughter is still LOVING school and so am I.
Our decision to send our daughter to Arma Dei was the right one! I was hesitant to send her to a Christian school because I didn’t want her experience to be “religious.” Upon visiting an open house, I had so much peace and she was enrolled.
The highlights of our experience with Arma Dei Academy are:
Relationships: The Kindie moms have quickly become some of my most treasured friends. They have supported me through an illness with my baby who was hospitalized over the holidays. They flooded our home with food, gifts and offers to help, visited us in the hospital and took care of our family. The school staff, administration and other families (we hadn’t even met) also supported us in prayer and support! Our awesome moms are always texting each other throughout the week, one mom will be running late and send out a text and within 2 seconds, three moms have said…..”I’ll wait here with your child til you get here.” It really is incredible. I appreciate the small community of like-minded families.
Character: Within the first couple weeks of school, my daughter came home talking to me about Attentiveness, then it was Obedience, Truthfulness, Generosity….etc. She sings songs about all the character qualities she has learned in school. It’s fun to her and helps me to coach her. I was so thrilled to have my daughter not just taught academically, but taught with the “whole person” in mind. She also deeply loves Jesus and prays for her school and friends. Any concerns I have had that her experience would be “religious” are gone.
Academics: There’s so much to say here, but the proof is in the development. My 5 year old 1. Reads like a champ 2. Recognizes famous paintings 3. Has been adding and subtracting double digits for months and started 1st grade math a couple weeks ago. 4. She writes her name in cursive!!! 5. Writes notes all the time and no longer reverses letters 6.Has vastly increased her vocabulary and loves homework! I also love that my husband and I get to pop in and have lunch with the kindergartners. They are like a little Italian family. Whoever talks the loudest and fastest gets heard. They are hilarious and so much fun! I also enjoy the opportunities we’ve had to serve the community over Christmas and also gather with the families for events like our Thanksgiving dinner, Dad’s cookout, School picnic, movie night and Valentine’s breakfast. The school offers a variety of opportunities to “do school” with your children and be a part of the community as a whole. I love talking about Arma Dei to our friends and community because it has been such a big part of our lives this past year.
My three children have been at Arma Dei going on our third year now and we have nothing but wonderful things to say! It is an outstanding school with amazing teachers and staff, and the very best place we could send our kids each and every day. They have learned so much not only academically but spiritually and emotionally, they are thriving. We make many financial sacrifices to make it happen and we have never questioned if it was worth it. It is 100% worth it, and has been the best decision we’ve ever made for our children and our family. We feel so blessed and fortunate that our children are getting a classical Christian education from Arma Dei Academy.
This is the fifth year that our children have attended Arma Dei Academy, and I cannot imagine a better option in the greater Denver area for their education. From the moment I toured the school I knew that they had a high view of Scripture with an unapologetic adherence to an orthodox Christian worldview and high academic standards & expectations for the kids. I did not, however, expect to be in such a warm & loving community of like-minded parents – so rare to find these days!
I also cannot speak highly enough about the staff and faculty. Every teacher that my kids have had for the last five years has demonstrated a passion for education, a desire to nurture our kids’ love for Christ, and has looked for every opportunity to help develop their character & their hearts. In the (very) few situations where there has been conflict with other children, the Arma Dei staff and teachers have been very intentional about handling disagreements in a way that follows the biblical model of conflict resolution. If I could give Arma Dei Academy more than 5 stars, I would!!
We are thrilled to have found Arma Dei! Our children were at another Christian school in the area for years, and we were hesitant to leave but we are now kicking ourselves for not making the move sooner. The academic and admissions standards lead to an amazing learning environment for all students and the small class sizes ensure individual attention. The teachers are excellent and really care about all of the kids. We are so happy with our school!
The Kindergarten class our daughter was in was not ideal for her so we started to look around. We came across Arma Dei and were blown away by their educational philosophy. The knowledge and character of the students impressed us. Arma Dei was gracious enough to allow us to enter in midyear.
Our daughter is on the shy end, and witnessing how the teachers (not just the Kindergarten teacher) and the administration went out of their way to welcome our daughter and make sure she thrived was overwhelming. They keep the class sizes small and you can see the benefit in the individual attention. Our daughter is grown leaps and bounds in not only her writing, reading, and math, but also in her character and attitude.
We also have loved the classical approach and the integration of faith, which mesh so well. Finally, we had a rough year financially and the school worked with us to make the finances work. We have been very grateful how Arma Dei Academy has journeyed with our family.
You feel Jesus at Arma Dei. His fingerprints are all over. We love that we’re in partnership with a school with a strong biblical and academic foundation that loves, prays for and guides our children. A true investment into their lives and their future. The communication with the parents is wonderful as well. Families are encouraged to be involved. I absolutely love the community, but mostly love how the teachers are so aware of each individual child. Your child is seen and heard.
We love everything about this school, especially the academic, spiritual and character development our kids receive. Other bonuses include small class sizes, sticking to trusted methods instead of following the ‘latest and greatest’ in education, developing leadership with students (corporate prayers, presentations to large groups), minimal technology in the classrooms, following the word of God, promoting community with the families and maintaining a culture of like-mindedness.
Best school in town. Our kids are absolutely thriving at Arma Dei Academy. They love going to school and are growing leaps and bounds both academically and socially.
“We have been thrilled with our daughter’s kindergarten experience. She is excited to go to school every day and is reading, adding two digit numbers with ease, and writing her name in cursive. She has also memorized may Psalms and walk around quoting poetry and the cutet little songs that reinforce character traits like obedience and gratefulness. She is very ready to move on to first grade academically and has grown in personal character as well.”

We are very grateful we found Arma Dei! Arma Dei knows its story well and sticks to its mission. Small class sizes. High standards for academics including math and science with a strong biblical foundation. Kids regularly get outside for play. Lots of variety – music, art, chapel. No/little homework! Chapel is always very well done and compelling. Lots of opportunities for family engagement.
In one semester at ADA we have witnessed such tremendous growth in our daughter. Her love of learning and her walk with the Lord have transformed and we could not be happier with our decision to send her ADA. I would highly recommend ADA to anyone who is looking for a classical education and for teachers and staff that care deeply for their students. Thank you, ADA! We feel so blessed to be a part of your family!
