Please make a commitment to support Create Academy by making a contribution.
Create Academy is a public, tuition-free charter school with 501(c)(3) status that opened in central Phoenix in August of 2015. Our school, while open to all students, specifically seeks to support students who have been historically disenfranchised due to economic or other societal inequities. Between 80 and 90% of our student population will be living at or below the poverty line.
The mission of Create Academy is as follows: Through an arts integrated curriculum anchored in project-based learning, Create Academy will prepare all students for success in college, career, and society by teaching students to collaboratively invent, design, and implement creative solutions that address societal problems and injustices.
As you know, Arizona is one of the most underfunded states for education in the country. The average school is working under serious constraints, but Create Academy, due to the reality of its student population, as well as its unwavering commitment to provide all students with a stellar arts enriched education, has an even greater struggle in adequately funding all of its programs.
While state funding and grant monies allow Create Academy to provide the fundamental parts of this arts integrated, project based, and social justice education, and thereby fulfill the mission of the school, we are asking you to provide additional support to ensure every element of our school is excellent.
