Given hard work, urgency, and dedication, PCA students will graduate prepared for four-year universities and succeed in the world advocating for themselves and others.

We are a nonprofit, FREE charter school that serves one of the most impoverished communities in South Phoenix. Our goal is to close the achievement gap by helping low-income and minority students achieve high academic goals and go to college.
