High School drops in on the same campus as EVIT tech school

The East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT) and Heritage Academy created an innovative new high school with the goal to improve graduation rates and make high school more fun! Did you know that adding technical training to a student’s high school curriculum increases the chances of graduation by over 80%?

The school, named Paul Revere Academy, is the first ever high school of its kind, combining academic programming from a charter school with the offerings from a district technical school, all on the same campus. Students will attend 1/2 day of academics and then walk across the parking lot to attend their technical classes!

“Education is simply organized love,” said Jared Taylor, Chairman. “There are many great entities trying to provide services to youth separately. Paul Revere Academy will put the best of these entities together to give these youth a sense of belonging, independence, and greater chance of living the American dream.”

Beverlee Kroll, a state coordinator with DCS shared, “Paul Revere Academy’s partnership with the East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT) provides a unique opportunity for students to gain a high school diploma and a vocational certificate on a single campus. Paul Revere is committed to removing barriers to success for young people experiencing foster care through the provision of on-campus supportive services and transportation when the young person experiences a change in their living arrangement. Experiencing high school with the same peers across all four years affords students the opportunity to build lifelong friendships and positive connections with caring adults, enhancing their overall well-being as they transition to adulthood.”

Paul Revere Academy will be located on EVIT’s main campus in Mesa, and will open its doors to welcome students in July, 2023. Enrollment is now open! As a public charter school it will be an option for all 9th – 12th grade youth interested in combining technical education with their academic high school experience.
