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 also has an accredited online school option for students in grades K-12 and a Hybrid Model in the West Valley!
