  • Brand new Boys Junior High Basketball team

  • Powerful quarterly prayer event
  • Fun and uplifting musical theater presentation
  • Amazing new staff and teachers
  • Amazing new families
  • Project:Paintball moving forward – the grounds are cleared and obstacle construction is next, with beta testing coming this winter
  • The state inspector ‘miraculously’ finding our boiler inspection certification, allowing us to reopen and avoid paying $6000 in unnecessary repairs
  • The lightning surge blowing through three nearby transformers but NOT entering our building, allowing us to avoid potential +$100k in repairs, all while the city repaired and upgraded our surrounding utility hardware

Giving Tuesday is right around the corner and we want our TDA community to have the opportunity to GIVE to our school and vision of raising up modern day Daniels. Since starting a formal partnership development effort 2 years ago, it feels like we’ve been fundraising to ‘stay alive’. This year however, with enrollment being strong, it feels like we can finally engage in fundraising ‘to grow’ – that means TDA 2.0/HOPE District! That’s A LOT of important information, let me unpack all of that.

Modern Day Daniels

Our hope and vision is to see God raise up a generation of leaders, who will transform the heart of our country. In the book of Daniel, the Bible gives us the archetypical reformer, a bearer of light in a world of darkness. The Daniel Academy is a school dedicated to the raising up of these modern day ‘kings’ and ‘queens’. God is calling a generation of students to stand, when everyone else is bowing down; to live set apart and wholly committed to God, fully equipped and ready to bring God’s heart and Kingdom into every sphere of society.

Partnership Development

We believe God is leading us to work the land unto sustainable fruitfulness, but in order to get there, we need to grow our network of partners. We are casting the vision of TDA 2.0 and the HOPE District, and asking for you to partner with us, for the long haul! 

TDA 2.0/HOPE District

Eight years ago, God gave us an opportunity to purchase the 18 acres of land that TDA currently sits on. Two years ago, God gave us clear direction to start building on it – what we now refer to as TDA 2.0. The HOPE District is a crucial part of TDA 2.0, capturing our hopes and dreams for developing the land. We are dreaming of a hub and center for community. The HOPE District is: a gym, rec center, and athletic facility, a drama theater, a digital platform, a health clinic, a recording studio, a garage for auto services, a collaboration work space, a library, restaurants and retail, an afterschool program, and a business incubator. The HOPE District is also: a home away from home, a hub for families to find community, a space for Daniels to make their marvelous comrades…all in the context of HOPE and what God is doing across the land.

This Giving Tuesday there are 2 giving opportunities

  1. TDA Legacy Fund – The Daniel Academy Legacy Fund, was started several years ago to financially assist our teachers. Each one of our TDA Teachers are amazing. They each bring their own unique passion to educate students, care for families, and raise up Daniels. They also have each made the financial sacrifice to come work here, as TDA does not yet pay market rates for teacher salaries. Our hope is for the TDA Legacy Fund to help offset our lower salaries. 
  2. TDA 2.0 – As we continue to unpack TDA 2.0 and the Hope District, we can’t help but feel God’s pleasure and excitement over this. We find ourselves dreaming with Him, to build healthy and hope-filled communities: families, businesses, and ministries. 

TDA is a 501.c3 with tax donation status, and will issue a tax receipt for all donations received. Please send this note to anyone you think would like to give to this Vision! To GIVE:

You can also drop off a check in our tuition box located in our foyer. Again, please note in the memo that this for – TDA Legacy or TDA 2.0.
