Current 8 and 9th grade students and their families are invited to learn more about the education offered at Tempe Preparatory Academy at its High School Information Night on Thursday, January 31 at 6:30 p.m. on the Tempe Prep campus at 1251 E. Southern Avenue in Tempe.
This is a great opportunity for interested high school families to see what the Tempe Prep curriculum and extracurricular activities are all about.
“At this open house, parents and students will be introduced to who we are and how we educate students so successfully,” says Headmaster Dr. Wayne Porter. “They will also be able to speak with current high school teachers as well as athletic and club directors to learn about the exceptional curriculum and extracurricular activities offered here to high school students, from robust athletics, choirs, and debate to robotics and more.”
Tempe Prep is currently accepting applications for the Fall 2019.
Tempe Preparatory Academy is a tuition-free public charter school in Tempe for students in grades 6-12 that provides a nationally acclaimed liberal arts education based on the Great Books of Western Civilization with an exceptional math, science, foreign language, humanities, and fine arts curriculum. Over half of Tempe Prep’s graduates pursue majors and careers in engineering and STEM fields
All high school students take four years of math, through Calculus II, and four years each of lab sciences, literature, social studies, foreign language, and fine arts. As a capstone project, all Tempe Prep seniors write and publicly defend a senior thesis based on their choice of great ideas explored throughout their curriculum.
“Our curriculum is rigorous, preparing students for college, and ultimately career success. Our class sizes are small, as are the teacher loads. We offer a safe learning environment enriched with arts, athletics and character education,” explains Dr. Porter. “Tempe Prep offers the well-rounded education most parents are seeking for their children.”
Tempe Prep has been recognized by the Arizona Board of Regents as having the highest percentage of college graduates in the state (2016) and has been named the #1 high school in Arizona by Newsweek (America’s Top High Schools 2016).
