 In Branding

Hello Power Campus!

Don’t forget tomorrow, Wednesday, April 26, we are on a half-day schedule…

This is the big one! End of the Year MAP testing is happening next week.  Math MAP testing is May 1-3 and reading MAP testing is May 4-5 and May 8.

The school set a goal last summer to make sure that at least 70% of our students scored above the 50th percentile in their grade-level math and English. At the Winter testing session, in grades 7-12, we averaged 73% in reading, and 60% in math. Now is our final chance to reach our goal! Please make sure to talk this up and make it a big deal for our students.

Thank you to the families who participated this past Saturday in the Montessori Fundraiser and Gala event. The culinary department did an amazing job with the dinner and the attendees, performers and artwork auctioned was fantastic! Dr. Sippel was also pretty funny on stage all night… If you haven’t been to one of these events, I suggest you try coming out next year.



This is the last weekend to get your outfit ready for Prom! Join us for a “Night in Neverland” 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.
