Located at Beaver Creek Ranch, Rimrock, outside the city of Sedona, 95 miles north of Phoenix and northeast of Camp Verde, Yavapai County in northern Arizona, Southwestern Academy is a co-ed independent private college preparatory high boarding school for grades 9-12. We also provide ESL programs and a postgraduate year. In this stunning setting, nature is the ultimate learning laboratory for history, geology, archaeology, biology, and visual and performing art lessons. Here, your child can reach his highest potential, participate in sports and activities, and make lifelong friendships.
Living on campus is an important part of your child´s educational experience. As students live with classmates from around the world, they learn more about other cultures and expand their horizons. There is always someone around to hand out with, help with that math problem, or lend a listening ear when you need one. Our campus dormitories offer a safe and fully supportive environment, supervised by resident counselors. International students are welcome. We have a second campus in San Marino, California and are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
