We believe in scholars having access to college level coursework in high school. This prepares our scholars for success in college and provides financial help to families who do not have to pay for these college credits.

All scholars are encouraged to excel in four Advanced Placement (AP) or dual enrollment classes that are related to a desired area of study in order to graduate.

Empower College Prep’s instruction emphasizes the critical thinking and perseverance necessary for success in college. Every scholar is enrolled in a rigorous curriculum that is aligned to Arizona’s Career and College Readiness standards, the Next Generation Science Standards, and Advanced Placement courses for Social Studies. It supplements these standards with curriculum from Summit Learning, a curriculum developed in conjunction with Stanford University and used at a high-performing charter network in California. It includes 36 critical thinking skills used across content areas.
