PS Academy Arizona Clubs

Every Friday, the junior/high school students participate in several of the social skills clubs that we offer.  Each club gives them the opportunity to branch out in an area that they are interested in learning more about. These clubs encourage teamwork, active participation, social interaction and leadership.

My child was an 8th grader with his first year at PS Academy. With the past rough experiences with schools it was imperative that we find a good fit for our son. PS Academy is not just a school it is a community. The staff and kids encourage each other and form friendships, which is an important key to our son’s success in life. I am at peace knowing that my son’s future is in good hands.
