Denver School of the Arts

Fill_the_gapDid you know DSA does not receive extra district funding to cover the high-level arts program we offer?

DSA Leadership estimates it costs $6,250 to educate a DSA student in the arts and academics, but our 2017-18 allocation from DPS is $4,978 per student. Help us fill the gap of $1,272 per student! Your support of the Fill the Gap Campaign is greatly appreciated!
