BASIS Ahwatukee

BASIS Ahwatukee is in its fourth year, and is quickly building steam to make 2016-17 its best year yet. In 2015-16, BASIS Ahwatukee welcomed its largest faculty and student population, and displayed a high level of excellence and leadership that will continue to expand this year as new electives, more AP® courses, and Senior Projects are added to the curriculum.

Last year, BASIS Ahwatukee said farewell to its first graduating class; though a small group, the Class of 2016 received a collective 36 college acceptances and earned 20 scholarships totaling more than $705,000. BASIS Ahwatukee continues to grow and excel and, now that it has graduated its first class, is one step closer to achieving the same national recognition as its sister schools.

"If you want to do something, start with the basics. If you want to change the world, start with BASIS."
