Your NAIS Private School in Chandler

Have you considered a private school education?

Private School Chandler
As one of the best independent schools in the greater Chandler area, we provide an outstanding education for students from pre-school through eighth grade. Our school has received a number of awards as well as merits for our individual students and programs at the local and national level. We believe the summit of success cannot be reached without the proper foundation. That foundation is what we provide every one of our students.

What are independent schools?

We are a non-profit private school that offers an alternative to the public-school system. We provide children a private education and its requisite benefits while offering tuition accommodations through Arizona’s Private School Tax Credit and applicable scholarships.

Our mission is to provide students with smaller class sizes, individually tailored learning, and curriculum typically provided by a private institution with the same availability as a public option.  That’s why our spotlight on a liberal arts curriculum is built to help students grow in confidence and gain the critical and creative thinking that will help them succeed in a work environment where many of their opportunities for employment do not even exist yet.

Prepare Your Child For the Future With A Private School Curriculum

Comparing private schools starts with the school curriculum. At Summit School of Ahwatukee we concentrate on a core curriculum that reinforces educational standards in Science, Art, Math, Music, Physical Education, Technology, and Library usage.

This fully integrated curriculum is thematic and helps students at each grade level to make meaningful connections between subject matters and engage in a cohesive learning narrative. That reinforces individual study areas increasing retention, critical thinking, and comprehension across disciplines.

Private schools in Chandler support different age ranges.

We have different options depending on your child’s age. We support developmental learning from pre-school aged children through the eighth grade. Associated curriculum links can be found below.

Independent school accreditation occurs at an individual level. We carry:

Preschool Accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Elementary School Accreditation from the NCA CASI includes kindergarten through 5th grade.

Middle School Accreditation from the NCA CASI includes 6th grade through 8th grade.

Summit School of Ahwatukee is a leading private school in Chandler because we provide our students with a learning environment they can excel in. We foster their interests, create a learning environment that is safe, and help the students to build a community with one another. Ready access to the tools they need and instruction that engages them leads to academic success and more.
