• Welcome to Phoenix Collegiate Academy

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.

Phoenix Collegiate Academy prepares pre-k to twelfth grade students to succeed in college and be leaders in our community. 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.


PCA + ASU Prep

For the 2018-2019 school year, Phoenix Collegiate Academy will be merging with ASU Preparatory Academy and will become ASU Prep South Phoenix/PCA. This will mean lots of amazing changes for our students and our families. By providing college exposure like campus visits early and often to our entire pre-K-12 student community, students learn to envision themselves as college students and graduates in the future. Thanks to donor support, our college prep programming is one of the main drivers for our 92% college acceptance rate. Given ASU Prep’s close ties to ASU, the PCA community will have access to even more programs and supports to help them navigate the path to college.
