Our goal is simple: To create learning success stories, one student at a time.


Pillar Academy Online is an Arizona tuition-free public charter school that serves students in grades 9-12 across the state. The Online Academy provides students with a high-quality educational program based on a blended school model that combines student-centered learning, academic rigor, flexibility, rich technological resources and a strong academic support network.

All courses are completed online and our students have the option to stop by a Regional Learning Center to work online, receive face-to-face tutoring, or working with other Online Academy students. Our courses are aligned to meet state and national standards. The Academy is accredited by Cognia (formerly NCA/AdvancED).


In compliance with the ESSA/No Child Left Behind legislation, teachers' resumes are available for review upon request in the front office.
