Elevated Academy’s North Phoenix learning center is located at The Accelerated Learning Center. We are proud to be partnered with The Accelerated Learning Center in the North Phoenix community!
A Great Place To Learn
The North Phoenix Elevated Academy Learning center is a great place for students to learn and work with their mentor. Our classroom gives our students a safe and inviting environment to learn.
One on One Tutoring Available
Students will have the opportunity to receive one on one tutoring from our mentors in any subject area. We also provide bi-lingual support for any of our Spanish speaking students.
Amenities for Students
Short brain breaks during work time have been shown to have real benefits. They reduce stress, anxiety, and frustration. And they can help students focus and be more productive. Our North Phoenix location is perfectly set up for students to exercise, play games, and unwind during brain breaks.
Meet Your Mentors
Elevated Academy pairs all of our students with their own mentor teacher. They will be with you every step of the way on your journey to high school graduation and post high school life. They work tirelessly to ensure your success! Meet our North Phoenix Mentors Below.
