History of Denton Calvary Academy
In 1998 a group of private school and home-school parents sought out an alternative model of schooling for their children. They wanted to take advantage of all the benefits of a full-time school while allowing parents to be significantly involved in the education of their children. After seeking out different schools and models, they were introduced to Grace Preparatory Academy and University Model Schooling®. After researching the university model and partnering with GPA, plans began for the creation of Calvary Preparatory Academy. CPA opened its doors in the fall of 1999 with approximately 95 students in grades one through ten. In the spring of 2002, CPA celebrated the graduation of its first senior class of five students.
In the fall of 2002, Calvary Preparatory Academy changed its name to Denton Calvary Academy. DCA also began competing in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools in both athletic and academic competitions. In 2004, DCA was certified as a charter member of the National Association of University-Model Schools and in 2006 was granted accreditation status with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
Currently, we have approximately 250 students in attendance in grades 1-12. Just as our founding board families were pioneers in the development of DCA, our desire is to continue in the development of DCA for the future.
