Home / ASU Charter

ASU Preparatory Academy is chartered by Arizona State University, which is ranked #1 for innovation by U.S. News and World Report. Our students are Sun Devils, and receive regular opportunities for mentorship by ASU students and faculty throughout the year. Students spend time exploring their future career interests so that they know what to major in long before stepping foot on a college campus. We highly encourage our students to take ASU courses when ready, so they can get a head start on college before they finish their high school diploma with us.

Arizona State University is committed to access and excellence and taking fundamental responsibility for the communities it serves. ASU Preparatory Academy shares this commitment by demonstrating all students can achieve at the highest levels, regardless of socioeconomic status.

The ASU Charter

Arizona State University has developed a new model for the American research university, creating an institution committed to excellence, access and impact — the New American University. ASU’s charter, adopted in 2014, is the blueprint of that transformation:

ASU is a comprehensive public research university, measured not by whom it excludes, but by whom it includes and how they succeed; advancing research and discovery of public value; and assuming fundamental responsibility for the economic, social, cultural and overall health of the communities it serves.
