Denver Prep Academy Staff

Denver Prep Academy has a staff that is committed to the students and their success. The leadership of these individuals allows Denver Prep Academy to maintain an innovative, yet caring stance in our educational setting. They guide and lead with student-athletes at heart as they counsel them through any issue or challenge life throws at us during this pivotal time of development called high school. Great leaders focus on serving those within their sphere of influence; for DPA’s faculty members, it does not stop with just teaching a class – it extends into shaping lives!

Co-Founder of DPA and Director of Learning , a Building Futures Institution

“Denver Preparatory Academy is a place where athletics and academics don’t compete – they work together. Each is a core part of who we are, and each will help our students as they develop into mature individuals. I’m proud of that fact and believe it makes DPA a worthy school for any student. In fact, it’s where I’ll be sending my sons.”

“It’s not enough to be talented. It’s not enough to want it. To truly succeed in athletics, you need the support and knowledge of trainers and coaches who care and a team committed to working together. Through rigorous training, focused coaching, and expert team building, DPA can help transform talent into exceptional ability.”
