Archway Classical Academy | Chandler asks every family in the Archway Chandler community to participate in our two annual fundraising campaigns: The Community Investment campaign supports our academic model in the classroom and the Tax Credit drive supports our extra-curricular programs. Together, these two efforts are vital to the health of the school and our ability to provide a full prep school education to every student.

The essential priorities of Archway Chandler’s educational model cost more per-student than what we receive from public funding. Therefore, we ask our families to contribute to the annual Community Investment campaign and help make up that difference.
What does it support?
Family support through the Community Investment campaign allows the leadership of Archway Chandler to run the school day-to-day, and to hold fast to our mission as we plan and grow. Our Community Investment campaign:
Helps us pay, reward, and retain our excellent and dedicated faculty
Keeps our class sizes small with two teachers in each classroom
Allows us to provide a classical preparatory education in a public school setting
The result is that our teachers instruct far fewer students than the district average, are better able to prepare for their lessons, and have more time for communication with parents. Our students receive more meaningful assignments, daily feedback, and the opportunity for one-on-one tutoring. These are essentials you will not find at a district school. These are the essentials that set Archway Chandler apart.
How do families participate?
We ask each family to contribute $1,200 to help cover the per-student gap between what we need for our academic model and what we receive from the state. Knowing that every family's financial situation is different, we encourage families to give as they are able. Many families choose to spread out their contribution by making monthly gifts over the course of the school year. Other families make a one-time gift to the Community Investment campaign. Every family’s participation, at whatever level, is vital to supporting the priorities of Archway Chandler.
The Arizona Public School Tax Credit is a unique state program that allows Arizona taxpayers to contribute to qualified extra-curricular programs and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit on their state taxes. Married couples can donate up to $400 and single filers can donate up to $200 and receive the full credit from their state tax liability.
What does it support?
Tax Credit contributions support qualified extra-curricular programs at Archway Chandler. Community support through successful Tax Credit drives at Archway Chandler ensures that we are able to provide a vibrant extra-curricular program for our students.
Who can participate?
Every family can take advantage of the Arizona Public School Tax Credit and support Archway Chandler. Many families chose to contribute in November and December, but any Tax Credit contribution made in the 2014 calendar year will receive the dollar-for dollar credit.

Last fall, we received a generous grant of $244,000 from the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority. This grant is a tremendous opportunity to finish the full vision of our permanent campus home, and we need the help of our whole community to make it happen.
Coupled with the support of our community, this grant will open up a wealth of possibilities as well as improving the overall look of the campus. With this project, we will:
Install full field lighting!
This will dramatically expand the use of our field, allowing for more practices and games year round and in the evening. It will also allow for evening community events such as the Medieval Faire and Titan Triad.
Install aluminum bleachers for our games and community events!
These bleachers will not only give us all a place to cheer the teams for our games, but will help bring more of our community out to the games, school events, homecoming festivities and much more.
Install a regulation size field with an electronic outdoor scoreboard and electrical outlets!
We will expand our field to regulation size for Football games, and our Soccer teams will also be able to play under the lights, in front of bleachers for the fans, and on full-size, regulation fields, with a full electronic scoreboard.
Install batting cages and a sprint track!
Two permanent battings cages for Softball and Baseball, as well as a 100 yard 2-lane sprint track with long-jump pit will help more athletes practice effectively and have a greater array of practice options for nearly all of our outdoor sports.
These many improvements will positively impact our students and our entire community. It will complete the dream for our campus set forth five years ago.
