Arizona Autism Charter School (AZACS) is the first tuition-free, public charter school in Arizona focused on the educational needs of children with autism. In 2013, AZACS was unanimously approved by the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools (ASBCS) as a K-5 school in Metro Phoenix. In 2016, after presenting exemplary student growth data, the ASBCS approved AZACS to extend to grades 6-8. AZACS grew yet again in 2017 when the state board approved to school to expand to 12th grade, making Arizona Autism Charter School the ONLY K-12 charter school in our state focused on children with autism. AZACS is growing its High School by one grade level each year, offering grades K-9 in the 2018-19 school year.
