DaVinci Academy started operation on April 15, 2004. It was named after Leonardo da Vinci. Originally located in the Old Post Office Building, it is now located in the former American Can Company of Utah Building Complex. During its first year of operation, the student body consisted of the 9th and 10th grades. As of 2013-2014, it is a full K-12 school.
In late 2008, the school board decided to purchase the building located at 283 20th Street, north of the school. In the beginning of the 2009−10 academic year, the building was unveiled as a center for the 7th−9th graders. The two buildings are connected with a corridor.
There was also some renovation done to the south building. Parts of the commons area were demolished to make room for three new classrooms.
Currently the south building is used for the main office, media center, computer labs and cafeteria. The first floor of the north building is used for the counseling and behavior offices, gymnasium, school store, board room and theater.
The south building and the first two floors of the north building all hold classrooms for 7th to 12th grades. Kindergarten to 6th grades are located on the 3rd floor, away from the middle and high school students.
The founding premise of the school was a project-based learning environment focusing on science and the arts. DaVinci Academy's graduation requirements require more course credits in all academic areas and the arts than does Utah's public school system.
