 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

Now that state testing is finished, we are looking forward to of our end-of-year celebrations and our final MAP testing.

As we begin to wind down from the school year, we set another record for earned scholarships with over $1.8 million for the 2023 seniors! We have over 65% of our graduating seniors accepted into 4-year colleges or universities and many others with opportunities for other post-secondary schools. Great job San Tan!

Thank you parents for helping to keep our high standards for dress and modesty in upholding our STCS dress code. Just a reminder as we continue into our warmer months:


From the STCS Family Handbook…

Shirts and tops must have straps at least two inches wide and not expose midriffs or be

too low cut in the front, back, or under the arms. Halter-tops and shirts with spaghetti

straps are not appropriate. Half shirts are not appropriate. Clothing may not be made of

see-through fabric. Clothing must cover the entire buttocks and a modest area of the

legs. Undergarments should not be exposed.


*School administrators will make the final decision regarding the appropriateness of any student’s appearance.



Join us for a “Night in Neverland” Prom event Saturday, May 6th, at the Arizona Golf and Resort in Mesa.  The event, sponsored by Student Council, is from 7-10 pm. Ticket prices are $40 for couples and $30 for single tickets.

Please click here to purchase prom tickets.

If your student plans to bring a guest, please complete a guest form and have it turned in to the front office by 3:30 PM on May 2nd.

Only students with approved guest forms will be admitted into the dance (even if a ticket was already purchased).

Tax Credit Giving

San Tan Charter is well on its way of reaching our goal of $100,000.00. To continue with this gracious giving, please read below as there is still time to donate.

The form link is now open to donate:


With your support, we can continue to provide the programs outlined below:

  • Junior High and High School Culinary Arts: Restaurant quality cutlery, pots/pans, additional shelving, and supplies for the classroom
  • Full-Day Kindergarten Scholarship
  • Funding for the Library/Media Space
  • Health Care Supplies
  • Playground Equipment

In addition, our Montessori Preschool School gives out around $45,000.00 a year in scholarship to those families in need, we are able to offer these scholarships because of the Arizona School tax credit program. 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. You do not have to have a child at the school to pledge, you must only be an AZ State resident paying AZ State taxes.
