The Daniel Academy is a private Christian school in Kansas City, Missouri for students in preschool through high school. At TDA, our vision is to train our students like modern-day versions of Daniel in the Old Testament, helping them become young men and women prepared with both spiritual and academic excellence, ready to bring the Lord’s presence and use their gifts to serve others wherever they go.

We do this through creating a fun atmosphere where deep friendships can emerge, while also focusing on high-quality classroom education with student-led worship assemblies, Bible classes, and three-times-a-day prayer.
