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 is preparing to launch the school in August of 2024.
