In 2017, BASIS Phoenix enters its sixth year of operation and will graduate its fourth senior class in May. Thus far, BASIS Phoenix has averaged more than $200,000 per graduate in merit-based aid with 100% college acceptance to institutions such as Columbia, Cornell, Northwestern, and Yale, to name a few. Recently, BASIS Phoenix was mentioned in The Arizona Republic as a top Arizona high school based on average SAT score.
The school is fortunate to have College Guidance Counselor Kate Taylor and her Assistant College Guidance Counselor Tracy Witz as part of its faculty. Attending a dedicated class every day with a ratio of one teacher to seven students allows for the personal attention and time students need to submit quality college applications. Having two counselors also allows the school to have one counselor focus more on helping students manage their Senior Project resources.
