Welcome to Phoenix Educator Preparatory
Phoenix Union High School District is proud to announce the anticipated opening of Phoenix Educator Preparatory in the 2023-2024 school year. Phoenix Educator Preparatory is an innovative and interactive lab-school environment where students jump-start their futures by choosing their own pathways of study these areas: Elementary Teaching, Secondary Teaching, Counseling, Social Work, or Educational Psychology.
Phoenix Educator Preparatory deepens the connection between students’ personal passions and service to their communities. No matter which learning pathway a student might choose to pledge at the end of their freshman year, Phoenix Educator Preparatory graduates will be the highly-trained and next-level teachers, leaders, and caregivers of tomorrow – in our school systems and/or in fields like healthcare, law, politics, etc.
- Designed as an early-college, early-service high school in which students may earn up to an Associate's degree through local higher education partnerships to jump-start their futures.
- In a collaborative environment, students will blend academic and social and emotional learning, and will have weekly access to college tutors and community mentors from students’ chosen pathways. Students will also start earning industry experience via observations, job-shadowing, and internships – while in high school!
- After graduating from Phoenix Educator Preparatory, students will enroll in a college/university of their choice and continue earning college credit in their selected education pathway to earn a Bachelor's degree.
- While in college, our goal is to create ways for students to earn a second Bachelor's degree in a different area of their choosing in 3 years or less to expand options for their futures.
- During and after college, students gain early and priority employment opportunities within PXU by staying connected to our campus and residency program supports (tuition assistance, financial/living supports, etc.).
We know that today’s students are ready to go places and do things that matter – and we look forward to meeting the future hearts and minds that can help us change the world together. We will welcome our first 100 freshmen next school year, and our enrollment application will be available on our website soon. If interested in staying connected, please submit your contact information via the interest form on the left and we will reach out periodically with updates about Phoenix Educator Preparatory.
*Phoenix Educator Preparatory will be located within PXU’s boundaries (location details coming soon).
