Arma Dei Academy takes the safety of our students, staff, parents and community members seriously.
How the school closure decision is made
Beginning early in the morning we have several staff members relay the conditions they see across the county and at our schools. If conditions are extremely treacherous or the forecast indicates that they may become too dangerous the team makes a recommendation for a closure.
If school remains open
During Colorado winters, snow and ice are to be expected. We encourage everyone to drive extremely cautiously and not worry about arriving late. As always, we respect a parent’s decision to keep their students home.
Where are closures and delays posted?
In the event of a closure or delay, the information will be immediately posted on the Arma Dei website and Facebook page & group. Local news stations will be notified and an emergency text alert will be sent.
Arma Dei Academy requires that each student wear a school-approved uniform to enhance the atmosphere of learning, minimize ambiguities, and foster a spirit of camaraderie among the student body. The student is identified with a group that strives for excellence. The policy is established and enforced toward that end.
All families (existing and new) should take time to review the NEW Uniform Guide as you begin to prepare for the school year ahead. Please direct any questions about uniform policy to Lora Bowman. Rhetoric Uniform will be coming soon!

The mission of ACCS is to promote, establish and equip schools committed to a classical approach to education with a Biblically-based Christian worldview.

The Classical Difference is published by the Association of Classical & Christian Schools (ACCS) on behalf of member schools to educate and inspire parents and supporters on the benefits of classical Christian education. Arma Dei Academy families receive the magazine four times a year (Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall).
At Arma Dei Academy we aim to graduate students who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding; who reason persuasively and articulate precisely; who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in light of the Scriptures; and who do so in joyful submission to God.
Over the past eight years we have successfully prepared and launched graduates into their high school and college years, where they are actively becoming intelligent and thoughtful leaders, continuing their pursuit of a purposeful life marked by Truth.
Not only have we witnessed the fruit of a classical Christian education first-hand amongst our students, but the research confirms what history has repeatedly demonstrated: classical Christian education can influence the course of a home, a community, or a nation.
The Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS) has released “Good Soil – 7 Comparative Profiles of ACCS Alumni”, a comparative study of 24-42 year old alumni from public, secular private, Catholic, evangelical Christian, religious homeschool, and ACCS schools, on topics ranging from life-choices, preparation, attitudes, values, opinions, and practices.
We invite you to set aside some time to review this remarkable testimony of classical Christian education, so that you may be encouraged by the investment and sacrifice you are making today.
