Archway Classical Academy - Scottsdale asks every family in the Archway Scottsdale community to participate in our two annual fundraising campaigns: The Community Investment campaign supports our academic model in the classroom and the Tax Credit drive supports our extra-curricular programs. Together, these two efforts are vital to the health of the school and our ability to provide a full prep school education to every student.

The essential priorities of Archway Scottsdale’s educational model cost more per-student than what we receive from the state. Therefore, we ask our families to contribute to the annual Community Investment campaign and help make up that difference.
What does it support?
Family support through the Community Investment campaign allows the leadership of Archway Scottsdale to run the school day-to-day, and to hold fast to our mission as we plan and grow. It ensures that:
Our class sizes stay small with two teachers in each core classroom
The arts are kept as an integral part of our curriculum: choral music, studio art, and foreign language
We are able to reward and retain the very best faculty
The result is that our teachers instruct far fewer students than the district average, are better able to prepare for their lessons, and have more time for communication with parents. Our students receive more meaningful assignments, daily feedback, and the opportunity for one-on-one tutoring. These are essentials you will not find at a district school. These are the essentials that set Archway Scottsdale apart.
How do families participate?
We ask each family to contribute $1,500 to help cover the per-student gap between what we need for our academic model and what we receive from the state. Knowing that every family's financial situation is different, we encourage families to give as they are able. Many families choose to spread out their contribution by making monthly gifts over the course of the school year. Other families make a one-time gift to the Community Investment campaign. Every family’s participation, at whatever level, is vital to supporting the priorities of Archway Scottsdale.
