Why Life Prep Academy??
At Life Prep Academy we believe that every child is a precious miracle created in the
image of God. We believe that our students should be taught in a classroom with a low
student to teacher ratio so that every child will receive individualized attention and be in the most effective learning atmosphere to support effective learning and growth.
We believe that every student should be held accountable for learning their grade
appropriate Arizona State Core Curriculum, as required by the Arizona Department of
Education, as well as the foundations of faith as taught through the Holy Scriptures.
Life Prep Academy will begin the 22/23 school year offering Kindergarten and 1st Grade
Classes. Each year Life Prep Academy will be adding an additional academic grade so
that our students can grow with us in a caring and positive learning environment.
Life Prep Academy will be using a State of the Art academic curriculum with a base of
Christian Values. Individualized faith studies will be taught and mastered as well. Our
expectation is to far exceed the proficiency of the other schools in this area, as well as
exceeding the state average proficiency, which is sadly low.
