Mountaineering Day

On this year’s Mountaineering Day, our 6th-9th graders, along with teachers and parent chaperones, embraced a full day of hiking in the Rocky Mountains. This PE Day included a 13’r and three 14’rs, and challenged everyone to practice perseverance, encourage one another, and delight in God’s stunning handiwork. Our climbers enjoyed clear skies and sunshine as they overcame mental and physical obstacles, taking one step at a time until summiting their peaks. Many students cheered as they achieved victory at the top of their mountains, including the entire 9th-grade class who successfully summited their 14r! We are so proud of our…

Preschool Begins!

This past Tuesday, we welcomed our littlest students into their first school years at Arma Dei Academy. Our wonderful Preschool staff greeted students with enthusiasm as they walked through the doors of their brand new classrooms located in Phase II of the main Arma Dei campus. Teachers will prepare these young minds for the classical education model throughout the year as they engage them through song and poetry, hands-on exploration, and rich literature emphasizing God’s story. We are excited to be part of the nurturing and training of these precious children!

Rhetoric “Lock-In”

Our new 9th-Grade Students enjoyed a "lock-in" in the school last Friday night. Immediately after school they traveled to Castle Rock to participate in some team-building exercises and to test their nerves on the Edge's Adventure Tower. They returned to the school for smores on the patio, a time of reflection and planning, and some evening games before getting some (not much, but some) sleep in designated classrooms. In the morning, they teamed up with Denver-based charity A Little Help to complete some yard work and odd jobs for elderly individuals in the local area. One of the elderly ladies our…
