Charter Elementary School in Glendale, AZ

Canyon Pointe Academy was established in 2002 as one of Arizona’s premier kindergarten through sixth-grade charter elementary schools. We’re part of the Pointe Schools system and are a feeder school for North Pointe Prep, which features grades 7-12. Our campus is smaller than most public charter schools, but it offers big opportunities and hands-on educational experience for each child. As a leader among Arizona’s charter middle schools, we’re dedicated to preparing your child for the rest of their academic career.

Our school operates on four core pillars:

  • Academics
  • Athletics
  • Arts
  • Activities

Helping Kids Discover a Passion for Education

Learning is a lifelong endeavor. Children who embrace education and develop a zeal to learn not only do better in elementary charter schools such as ours; they grow to become well-rounded adults who understand and pursue success as a function of educating themselves. At Canyon Pointe Academy, we believe this zeal for education begins from the moment a child enters our elementary schools.

The teachers on our staff either have a degree, certification or experience and credentials equivalent to a cert/degree. They’re familiar with the needs of budding young minds and understand how to teach kids in a way that’s captivating and motivating. Whether it’s math or science, language arts or social studies, we have clear standards and a focused mission to get our students ahead of the pack. They’ll enter middle and high-school in a position to succeed, so they can continue distinguishing themselves through secondary education and later in life as professionals.

Our Approach to Education is Simple:

We want to foster the will to learn and make education an exciting, appealing concept for our kids! To do this, we offer a balanced prep school curriculum, activities, and small class sizes from kindergarten to sixth grade. While our curricula may be more difficult than other elementary charter schools and charter middle schools in the Glendale and Peoria, AZ area, we offer support, opportunities, and attention that few others can match.
