Welcome to Arizona Conservatory for Arts and Academics


Opened in 2012, Arizona Conservatory for Arts & Academics (ACAA) Elementary is a public, non-tuition charter school serving grades K-5. 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. If students make poor academic and behavior choices, they are required to participate in an intervention program on Fridays as well.

Upon completion of fifth grade, students have the option to feed into our accredited ACAA secondary school (6-12) and a letter grade label of "A" from 2009-2013 school years from the Arizona Department of Education. ACAA Secondary is one of the top performing arts schools in Phoenix, Arizona and received the 2010 Award for Top Performing Arts School from the Arizona Department of Education. In addition, ACAA received the National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA) for Higher Performing School in 2011 and 2012. 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).

ACAA Elementary offers reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, science, physical education, visual and performing arts. ACAA offers an innovative schedule, high powered curriculum based on Arizona state standards while allowing for creativity, small classes and a highly qualified faculty of certified educators and professional artists who share a mutual determination to find a better way to educate the next generation.
