Archway Classical is a state-chartered public K-5 school offering a classical liberal arts education that will prepare students to enter a Great Hearts Academy in middle school. Archway Classical is the first truly classical Core Knowledge primary school in Arizona. Each student will be provided with a durable foundation in Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, Geometry, Science, and Social Studies, in addition to meaningful and substantive work and play in Spanish, Fine Arts, P.E., and competitive chess.
The Chandler campus of Archway Classical is located on the same property as Chandler Preparatory Academy at 1951 N. Alma School Rd. However, the Archway campus is distinct from the Chandler Prep campus, with a separate entrance, administration, and student area.
The mission of Archway Classical is to develop the academic potential and virtuous character in each student through the use of a content-rich, rigorous curriculum, with a special emphasis on the cultural heritage of the Western Civilization.
