Tempe Prep is currently accepting applications for Fall 2021. 5th grade families who applied by December 15 will be included in the lottery for Fall 2021 enrollment.
Students applying for all other grades (or current 5th graders applying after December 15) are put on a waitlist and offered admission in the order of applications received, so it is advantageous to complete an application as soon as possible.
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, along with a mission of educating students to pursue Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.
Tempe Prep is currently offering in-person classes five days a week on its campus, with students also having the option to attend class online as needed.
Tempe Prep has been recognized by the Arizona Board of Regents as having the highest percentage of college graduates among all open enrollment public high schools in the state (2020) and has been named the #1 high school in Arizona by Newsweek (America’s Top High Schools 2016).
“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 and enriching 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.”
Over half of Tempe Prep’s graduates pursue majors and careers in engineering and STEM fields.
