Science Fair

We host and coordinate AHSEF, the Arizona Home School Science and Engineering Fair (formerly the CHET NW Homeschool Science Fair). The first year we had about 50 projects. We now see more than 100.

From our science fair students have gone on to participate in regional, state, national and international science fairs. Over the years, we have sponsored three ISEF participants, many Broadcom nominees and three Broadcom semifinalists.


Music Program

In 2012 we started our Music Program with about 12 students singing in the choir and learning guitar. In the 2016-17 academic year, we had more than 70 students in everything from chorale and guitar to music theory and private lessons.

We offer affordable private lessons students in flute, piano, guitar, violin, cello, bass and more!
