Banner Academy is a nationally accredited private school in Tempe, Arizona, with a long history of providing education to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), as well as emotional and learning disabilities. The school is open to students in grades 4th through 12th.
Families and school districts in the Metropolitan Phoenix area place students with special needs in our school because of our success with increasing academic and social skills, as well as reintegrating students into their home schools. We offer small classes, certified teachers and an individualized curriculum to help students reach their full academic potential.
The Banner Academy has been accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement, a division of Cognia since 1986, the first special needs school accredited in Arizona. Our school also meets the criteria set forth by the Arizona Department of Education as an approved Private Day School for students with special needs.
Banner Academy follows a modified public-school calendar. Our hours are Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. We also offer a summer school program and ESY (extended school year) services are available for qualifying students.
