A University-Model ® School
Offering Grades K-8
Where learning to love what is good, true and beautiful runs DEEP.
At Deep Waters Academy, we are...
DWA is a Christian school community founded on the basic Christian tenets and truths of Christianity. It is our desire to remain united in the salvation and love of Christ as one Body of Ecumenical believers. We are passionate about partnering with families to raise virtuous disciples of Jesus Christ! At DWA, our Christian faith will permeate through our goals and objectives, our teaching methods, and our curriculum.
We partner with families in a unique approach to education. We are collaborative in working with parents, the primary educators of their children, to create the opportunity for more intentional family time. DWA combines the best attributes of homeschooling with the best attributes of Christian school for a collaborative approach to education that gives families the gift of time with one another.
University-Model ® Schools International (UMSI) was established in 2002 for the purpose of implementing new schools and supporting existing ones. Its mission is to share the vision of the UMS with Christian families around the world. The vision of the University-Model School® is to strengthen families and values by helping parents prepare college-worthy, character witnesses of Christ for the next generation.
Testimonials from DWA parents
Trent Henderson | Father of a third grade student at DWA
"Removing my daughter from public school and placing her in Deep Waters Academy is the best decision my husband and I have made for her. All of her learning is individualized and biblical based. The small class sizes (on in school days) allow the teachers to truly teach to each student. The love the instructors have for teaching and their students shows. All questions and concerns are addressed immediately and you see that the teachers want all students to thrive in their education and their growth in Christ. Having more time at home has allowed our family to do more traveling and adventures together. It gives us the opportunity to have a larger role in her education without the concerns of inappropriate "teachings" from both educators and peers. As an eleven year old young lady, my daughter is thriving in both her education and confidence at Deep Waters Academy. She loves her school, teachers and classmates and has days that she is disappointed that she does not get to go into school that day. Our family is so excited to watch both our daughter and Deep Waters Academy grow in the years to come."
Niki Fischer| Mother of a DWA 5th Grader
"Christian parents who are seeking an alternative education platform for their child(ren) outside of public education need look no further than Deep Waters Academy. Teachers and administrators are focused on a God-centered, quality education for all students. The University-Model ® allows your child to receive and develop the academic, social, and relationship-building skills he/she needs on the at-school days but also allows for direct parent involvement and influence on the at-home learning days. We've seen tremendous growth in our son this year. It was absolutely the best decision for our son and for our family to enroll him in Deep Waters Academy."
