We Understand Your Child Needs A Safe & Positive School

Your child can become a successful working adult. Feel more comfortable when your child is in a learning environment that supports their academic, physical, social, and emotional growth through teaching and learning Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

No Parent Should Have To Feel Frustrated with Their Child's School

We have developed a plan to support your child. Schedule a tour, and then submit an application. Next, your child will attend our school for a one-day visit to ensure they are happy. After that, we will work together to develop a learning plan that guides your child’s transition into adulthood and the workforce.

Project SEARCH

The Project SEARCH program is an intensive work skills developmental program designed to facilitate a successful post-high school transition to the workforce for young autistic adults. This program provides a unique business-led, one-year employment preparation program that occurs entirely at the workplace.

Phoenix, Arizona is at the forefront of educational innovation with its diverse array of microschools, a movement gaining traction thanks to Universal ESA funding. These microschools are not confined to traditional settings—they operate out of districts, charters, private institutions, and even homes, providing personalized and supportive learning environments. From storefronts like KaiPod Learning, which mixes academics with enrichment activities, to school district options like PXU City which offers flexible schedules and immersive learning experiences, Phoenix is setting a standard for educational diversity as highlighted in a new Getting Smart Blog by Tom Vander Ark.

The integration of microschools on college campuses and special programs like the Science Prep Academy "Autistic Scholars" for neurodivergent students showcases the adaptability and scope of this educational model. These institutions cater to a variety of learning needs and styles, with many utilizing Arizona’s Empowerment Scholarship Account funds to make education accessible and personalized. As microschools continue to evolve, they offer a compelling alternative to conventional schooling by prioritizing small, tailored learning experiences that prepare students for real-world challenges.
