Facts & Features
At Denton Calvary Academy, students in 5th through 8th grades attend classes on campus Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and work at home (the satellite classroom) following teacher-constructed assignments on Tuesday and Thursday. Students are responsible for completing the out-of-class assignments on their own time, with the counsel and supervision of parents. This structure encourages the development of good time-management and self-discipline. It also provides excellent preparation for their future in higher education as well as the workplace.
Denton Calvary Academy seeks to honor the Lord in each academic area offered. We use a mixture of Christian and secular textbooks. Nevertheless, all curriculum, whether from a Christian or secular publisher, is taught from a biblical world view.

Your role as a UMS secondary parent is extremely important! Although your children are nearing adulthood, they are not yet adults, and you should not give them total responsibility for their education. You must stay involved, continue to invest in your children and their education, and hold your children accountable. This model of education takes time; be aware of the crucial role you play.
