I have attached instructions on how to enroll in Infinite Campus if you have not already done so and I have also included the step by step instructions on how to register for next school year.
The portal is open and you can enroll today! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email or call me.

PSAT Testing Opportunity for 10-12th Graders
On February 25th, the Counseling Department will be offering the PSAT 10 test to help our high school students get prepared for one of the most common college entrance exams, the SAT. The PSAT 10 is considered to be the official pre-test for the exam and will be ordered directly from the exam organization so that students can familiarize themselves with actual test content.
Please note that this test session takes place during our school day. We will be offering other test dates for the PSAT 10, but this will be our first session. It is
highly suggested that students take the practice exams as many times as they can, to help familiarize themselves with test content. The test session will begin promptly at 8:30am and will take around 3 hours to complete.
The a registration fee is $20.00, which can be paid for in the front office. If you would like for your student to attend this test session and take the PSAT 10, please use the signup link to register:
Registration and payments will be open until end of day on December 20th.
All payments must be made by December 20th.
NO LATE PAYMENTS OR SIGN UPS WILL BE ACCEPTED
For your convenience, here is a link to help you learn more about the PSAT 10 exam:
As our test day approaches, we will send out updates on what materials students should bring with them to help make their testing session successful. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our Counseling Department at any time.
Infinite Campus – New APP
Parents and students, We are excited to inform you that Infinite Campus has two new and improved mobile apps: Campus Student (for students) and Campus Parent (for parents). Download your free app for real-time access to grades, assignments, attendance, schedules, announcements and more.
If you are using the old Infinite Campus app, please download the new app. The old app will no longer be supported.
The tax credit program is the perfect way to give and support San Tan Charter School’s goal of $86,000.00. The program is a win/win for everyone.
By redirecting your tax dollars, you will support our amazing electives offerings. The best part, is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $100, you can deduct that $100 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may only contribute up to $400. If you are single, the total amount that you can contribute is $200.
You can pay in the office or online at the Credit4Kids Payment Portal
In addition, if you are interested in giving more, please consider the private school tax credit. Our Private Montessori School gives out around $60,000.00 a year in scholarship to those families in need. The best part is whatever you contribute, you will receive dollar for dollar back on your state taxes. So, if you give $500, you can deduct that $500 off what you owe in taxes. If you are a married couple, you may contribute up to $1,090. If you are single,the total amount that you can contribute is $545. Donations can be dropped off in the front office, please make checks out to San Tan Montessori and put in the memo line Private School Tax Credit.
