Transforming Lives, Building Futures, Strengthening Communities: Developing Our Greatest 
Natural Resource... Youth!

Center of Excellence High School

The Center of Excellence High School is a public high school chartered by the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools in 1995. The school is NCA accredited.

To support the overall mission of the organization (transforming lives, building futures, and strengthening communities by developing our greatest natural resource... YOUTH), the Mission of the Center of Excellence is to:

  • Provide each student with innovative learning experiences that develop positive intellectual, social, and physical outcomes of significance;

  • promote self-directed, lifelong learning; and

  • facilitate the student's ability to make responsible decisions about his or her education and future.

The school's Vision is that young people will:

  • Obtain the academic, vocational, personal, and social skills necessary to complete requirements for a high school credential and enter postsecondary education or training;

  • Be employed in jobs that support themselves and their families well;

  • Be valued as key contributors to the community's healthy growth and development.

Students experience a “real world” approach to learning and can can take advantage of many extra opportunities and supports. The school year consists of four quarters, starting in early August and ending in late May.  Students can attend during morning or afternoon hours, or can elect to attend both sessions if certain qualifications are met.  All core classes are offered and schedules are customized to meet students’ needs.

The Center of Excellence has an experienced and dynamic staff of highly qualified, dedicated teachers (their resumes are on file at the school office for your review).  There are usually no more than 15 students in a class, which means that each student receives individualized instruction and personal attention.
