The Explore Academy Educational Model

Innovative and creative as never before seen in education, the Explore Academy Educational Model reinvents the entire learning process. For more information about the Explore Academy experience, visit the home page.

History of Explore Academy - Peoria

The first Explore Academy opened its doors in August 2014 in Albuquerque, NM.  Since that time, it has implemented its proven model in new markets to provide an enriched, choice-based education for students in different parts of the country. 

Timeline

In December, 2021, the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools approved the charter for Explore Academy - Peoria.  The Explore Academy - Peoria board has used the 2022 and the spring of 2023 to prepare for the school's opening in August of 2023.
