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 taught in Socratic-style seminar classes.
