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.
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).
“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.”
Over half of Tempe Prep’s graduates pursue majors and careers in engineering and STEM fields. Tempe Prep’s Class of 2021 students received over $16.5 million in scholarship offers and TPA graduates attend undergraduate and graduate school programs all over the country, including, to name a few, Stanford, Harvard, University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton School of Business, Princeton, Dartmouth, UCLA, Boston University, Northwestern University, and each of the Arizona universities’ Honors Colleges.
