Empowering students to thrive in a diverse, interdependent world.


Phoenix International Academy is a free, public charter school located in South Phoenix.


Preparing students for the future of work.


At Phoenix International Academy, our name was inspired by the guiding principle that all students are capable of making a profound, positive impact on their local and global communities.  We call ourselves an international school because our students will be prepared with the skills they need to make a difference in an increasingly complex and interconnected world.



At Phoenix International Academy, we're focused on creating an environment that mirrors real life. Content is taught through the context of project-based learning - students are given authentic, hands-on experiences to demonstrate their learning. 


At Phoenix International Academy, personalized learning means that students learn and apply the most important skills they will need to be successful in life, regardless of how long it takes.


Restorative Practices

At Phoenix International Academy, we see every moment as an opportunity for learning and a chance to further engage our students.  When a student breaches the expectations of our community, they are supported to repair the harm that was caused and make our community even stronger than before.
