PXU Digital Academy Profiles
Hear from staff and students at PXU Digital Academy!
Hello PXU DA community, I’m excited to continue my teaching journey in my first year working at PXU Digital Academy. Before coming here, I had the pleasure of starting my career at Raymond S. Kellis HS before transitioning to Trevor G. Browne and Camelback HS here in PXU. I chose PXU DA because I want to be part of an innovative school that provides a unique learning experience for our students. I love that we provide a pathway towards graduation for students seeking a non-traditional high school education. I’m excited to build our newest school and for the opportunity to work with our amazing students and staff into the future.
— Eddie Aranda, Teacher
I have attended PXU DA for one year. Before coming to PXU DA, I attended North High School. I chose PXU DA so I could work full-time and continue my education. I really liked the flexibility of being able to work on my classes at any time and the teachers checked up on me and answered my questions when I had some. Now that I’m earning my high school diploma, I want to continue working in the pool construction career field and become a licensed contractor.

I joined PXU DA this year, after completing my freshman and sophomore years at North High School. I chose PXU DA because it has allowed me to pursue my education while maintaining my safety at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a student of Digital, I am able to self-pace and access my classes at all times. Because of PXU DA, I am able to graduate this year as a junior. I plan to go to college at ASU.

Like my twin sister, I too transitioned to PXU DA from North High School. PXU DA offers a variety of classes. I appreciate being able to easily access my counselor and teachers through Teams. I am graduating as a junior, and I hope to be better prepared for ASU next fall after graduating from PXU DA!

I have been at PXU Digital Academy since April 2019. I attended a school in Pennsylvania before I moved to Phoenix in February of 2019. I choose PXU Digital Academy because I liked that I could work at my own pace, which will allow me to catch up on credits and graduate on time. I love that PXU Digital Academy “built” a new campus for their students. It is beautiful and comfortable and I like that students have the option to go onto campus and get assistance with their classwork. After I am done with high school I am going to college to study more and work toward becoming a doctor. I want to make my uncle, aunt, and mom proud by showing them that I can do it.
— Yoselin Valdez, Class of 2021
I have been attending PXU Digital Academy since 2019. Prior to attending PXU Digital Academy, I was attending school at Primavera. I chose PXU Digital Academy because I thought that it seemed like a great fit for me. I love that with PXU DA offers so much support. Teachers, staff, and the principal are willing to help and support in any way possible. I like the structure and flexibility of the courses, too! PXU DA also has a campus, so students have the option to complete work at home or on campus. After graduating high school, I plan on attending college to further my passion in art or to become a labor and delivery nurse.
