Academic Apprenticeships

The ASU Academic Collegiate Apprenticeships, under the Collegiate Scholars Program, provide opportunities for students to experience ASU, investigate educational/career goals and build lasting relationships with peers and mentors, who share similar academic and personal interests.

This course will provide an opportunity for students to observe and gain hands-on experience in an academic setting while establishing a well-defined connection between education and employment. Students are selected for an ASU Academic Apprenticeship based on an application process that includes school attendance and behavior, grade point average (3.0 minimum), letter of recommendation by faculty, and a personal statement.

School Service Apprenticeship

Business Community Outreach Apprenticeships

Business Community Outreach Apprenticeships teach students career and industry needs and expectations for various organizations in the local community. Examples include internships at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix and the Arizona Science Center.

Capstones

Students at ASU Preparatory Academy High Schools are required to have a capstone project every year throughout their high school experience. Capstone is an in-depth learning experience, similar to a college thesis, that culminates with a year-end presentation. The capstone experience allows students to expand their thinking, delve more deeply into a concept and work with others who share their interests.

At ASU Preparatory Academy, students study the pillars of leadership, social entrepreneurship, partnerships, and academic preparation to develop their yearly capstone presentations. A capstone advisor works with a single cohort of students to facilitate student learning and assist students in the development of a portfolio that will span their entire high school academic growth.

Each capstone begins with shared study under the supervision of the capstone advisor. Students use technologies which will support their research, their connections to others, and their proficiency in future workplace settings.

ASU Prep students present their work at the end of each semester to their peers, advisors and an invited panel of distinguished guests.

Examples of Capstone Projects:

  • Obesity Solutions: Working with families and students to make healthy meal and lifestyle choices
  • Arts and Education Imagination Station - High School Students working with 1st - 5th grade students on art projects
  • Poverty and inequality
  • Substance abuse on college campuses
  • Saving the Bullied - Bullying Prevention
  • Prevention
  • Teen help hotline
  • Working with homeless and elderly

Dress Code

For kindergarten through grade eight, the school uniform is a maroon polo top and khaki bottoms. For grades nine through twelve, the uniform is a maroon or white collared shirt and khaki or black uniform bottoms.

Fridays are ASU Fridays. Students may choose to wear a gold collared shirt in place of the regular uniform shirt. Bottoms remain the same.

Family Involvement Program

Family partnerships help make critical contributions to student success. The purpose of our Family Involvement Program is to help families be active contributors to their child’s educational success; particularly assuring their child is prepared for success in college.

This program will apply to all registered families of ASU Preparatory Academy. The School and Family Liaison will track credits earned. Guiding points:

  • Each family will be required to fulfill a minimum of 30 credits of service (15 credits per semester)
  • Any family member can help contribute to the accrual of points through their service
  • One credit is worth approximately one hour of service
  • Credits are assessed to activities based on the level of involvement and the direct relationship to student support
  • Statements of current credit status will be distributed twice a year in December and May
  • ASU Prep sends a weekly email newsletter. If you would like to receive one for your school, please sign up in our front office.

Attendance

All students are expected to be in attendance every day school is in session. Regular attendance is essential for success in school; therefore, absences shall be excused only for necessary and important reasons. We do, however, realize that health and family take preference, but we ask families to plan activities on days and times other than when school is in session.

Our attendance policy is governed by ARS 15-803 – School attendance; exemptions; definitions:

  1. It is unlawful for any child between six (6) and sixteen (16) years of age to fail to attend school during the hours school is in session, unless excused pursuant to section ARS 15-803.
  2. A child who is habitually truant or who has excessive absences, may be adjudicated an incorrigible child. Absences may be considered excessive when the number of absent days exceeds 10% (18 days) of the number of required attendance days prescribed in section ARS 15-803, subsection B, paragraph 1.
  3. As used in this section:
    1. “Habitually truant” means a child who is truant for at least five (5) school days unexcused within a school year.
    2. “Truant” means an unexcused absence for at least one (1) class period during the day.
    3. “Truant child” means a child who is between six (6) and sixteen (16) years of age and who is not in attendance at a public or private school during the hours that school is in session, unless excused as provided by this section.

Absences

When a student needs to be absent, we ask that parents call the attendance line before 8:15 a.m. each day the student is absent. State law mandates that the school record a reason for all student absences. This greatly reduces the need to call you at work or home to confirm the absence. The absence will be unexcused if no reason is given. When calling, please leave the child’s name (with spelling), date of absence, grade level, reason for absence and a telephone number where you can be reached in case we have questions. Federal law requires that we make every attempt to contact parents on the day the student is absent.
