The Arizona Charter Schools Association is a nonprofit membership and professional organization that advocates and strengthens the autonomy, equity, and quality of Arizona’s diverse public charter schools. Founded in 1995, the Association is dedicated to supporting Arizona’s thriving public charter school sector. Since its inception, the Association has served as an innovative leader in transforming public education for Arizona’s 1.1 million students. Driven by the belief that all Arizona students should have access to a high quality public school, the Association is focused on creating and sharing innovative programs designed to support leaders and teachers as they work to improve student achievement.
The Education Evaluator is an easy transparent way to find and compare public schools in your neighborhood. It's a useful tool that highlights Arizona's vibrant school choice culture.
Our events provide participants with quality programming, relevant content, and valuable resources designed to support student achievement in Arizona.
Charter schools are a powerful force when united in the common goal to provide increased academic success for all students. The Association is a way to harness that force. Join us.
Public charter schools are innovative while still being held accountable for improved student achievement. Charters offer a tuition free public education to over 180,000 Arizona students.
With negative headlines splashed across news outlets, the hard work of our K-12 teachers and leaders is sometimes overshadowed and forgotten. We want to change that. Our Charters Changing Lives campaign is a way to share the stories that are often overlooked: to recognize the efforts of our students, teachers, leaders and community members who dedicate their lives to ensuring student success.
