ARIZONA'S FIRST

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 the 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-11 in the 2020 - 2021 school year, and going to 12th grade in the 2021 - 2022 school year.
