Chartered by ASU
ASU Preparatory Academy is chartered by Arizona State University, which is ranked #1 for innovation by U.S. News and World Report.

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.
