Suns-Diamondbacks Education Academy (SDEA), in cooperation with our families and educational partners will provide quality personalized learning programs to prepare every student for success in college, career, and life.
SDEA is intended for juniors and seniors who have fallen behind in their credits. Students are selected for admission based on transcript, discipline and an interview process. Students are admitted at the start of each 6-week term and there are six 6-week terms in the school year. The daily class schedule consists of two 145 minute classes. Regular classes are offered in Math, English, Social Studies, Business and Technology, Science, Health, as well as a limited selection of electives. Some SPED students are offered regular classes with minimum assistance and resources. Students earn extra credits by earning the right to attend Metro Tech Evening school classes as part of their schedule. Student athletes are encouraged to compete with their home schools. Graduation is twice a year, at the end of each semester, December and May.
