Does your child qualify?
AZ Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (ESAs) provide Arizona parents with funds that can be applied to OTA tuition! Eligible children include special education students with diagnosed learning disabilities. [The ESA application deadline for the 2014-2015 school year was April 1, 2014.]
>>Complete ESA details are available on the Arizona Dept. of Education website.
On-Track Academy truly has the BEST students in the Valley! :) Small but mighty, our school has achieved a number of fundraising and community service goals recently. OTA students raised over $1000 for the Red Cross, delivered over 1000 diapers to the Crisis Nursery, and supplied numerous blankets to Phoenix area charities for the homeless. We are also working with Kids Who Care to supplement service-learning both in and outside of the classroom.
Proof Positive from OTA Families
"Our time at On-Track Academy has been amazing; I have a son who is finally excited to go to school! The curriculum is tailored to his specific needs, and he is pushed to work his hardest every day, no matter what his challenges may be. The school is like a family, with each child cared for in a way that you would [care for] your own. Dana and the staff have dedication like nothing I have seen before. They are always going above and beyond to help our kids thrive."

Results that Speak for Themselves
In our inaugural year (the 2010-2011 school year) EVERY ONE of our students made tremendous gains academically and socially—with as much as four years of measurable academic growth!
Our last two school years have yielded the same excellent results for our students, and this year is shaping up to be one of even more outstanding growth! We are very, very proud of our students and teachers! :)

OTA Facts (& FAQs!)
Who is an ideal potential student for OTA private school?
On-Track Academy students are bright, capable kids who thrive in a structured, progressive learning environment. Many of our students have been diagnosed with learning disabilities, attention deficits (ADD or ADHD), twice exceptionalities, anxiety or mood disorders that can make learning in conventional schools difficult. Other students may travel often (athletes, actors) or may otherwise have issues with regular attendance and need the flexible schedules and ongoing support that we provide.
Whatever the reason, On-Track students have had difficulty performing to their best abilities in traditional school settings, but at On-Track Academy, they thrive!
