Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Scottsdale Academy's goal is for each child to be an independent, lifelong learner and view learning as an exciting and never-ending aspect of life. We offer quality education with developmentally appropriate programs through hands-on activities. Scottsdale Academy believes in high expectations and success for each child. The Academy provides an equal and non-threatening environment where each child feels free to learn, ask questions and grow as a human being. This is a place where a child's self-esteem is bolstered so he is ready and eager to learn. We believe in open communication with parents, as they are their child's first teacher."
