Welcome to Arizona Conservatory for Arts and Academics
An "A" Charter School in Phoenix Arizona


Opened in 2003, Arizona Conservatory for Arts & Academics (ACAA) is a public, non-tuition charter school serving grades K-12. ACAA is a member of Choice Education and Development, Inc., managed by Sequoia Schools. Students attend school Monday through Thursday. ACAA's doors are open on Fridays to offer students free tutoring for more academic support. In addition, Fridays are often used for department rehearsals. If students make poor choices, they are required to participate in an intervention program on Fridays as well.

ACAA achieved accreditation in 2010 and a letter grade label of "A" consecutively from 2009-2014 school years from the Arizona Department of Education. In addition, ACAA is one of the top performing arts schools in Phoenix, Arizona. ACAA received the 2010 Award for Top Performing Arts School from the Arizona Department of Education. ACAA also received the National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA) for Higher Performing School consecutively from 2011-2014. NCEA identifies higher performing schools that have consistent improvement in student achievement (growth) over the most recent three years and maintaining an "exceeds" standards result on the 2009-2011 Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS).
