Arizona College Preparatory Academics
6th grade at ACP provides for a more fluid and seamless transition to the junior high experience. The students move from class to class as they receive quality instruction from professors who are experts in their specific content areas. 6th grade will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of elective choices as part of the transitional experience including: PE, choir, band, orchestra, art, study skills and college readiness. We anticipate continuing with our before and after school arts as well as sports programs including running club, wrestling and football. We will also offer 6th grade Spanish club, allowing 6th grade students a jumpstart on their Spanish education in 7th grade.
7th and 8th Grades:Students will be introduced to a rigorous, college-prep curriculum at Arizona College Prep. All 7th and 8th students at Arizona College Prep enroll in honors level math and English classes. Other 7th and 8th grade core classes include science, history and foreign language (Spanish). Seventh and eighth-grade elective classes include: Art, Ceramics, PE, Publications, Life Connections, Band, Orchestra, Computers, TV/Media Productions.A small academic setting, coupled with personalized instruction, teacher support, high academic standards, and strict discipline will set a foundation for your child's academic and personal success in the classroom and in their professional lives.
