Our partnership with Western School of Science and Technology began in 2016. 

As a tuition-free, public charter school in Phoenix, Arizona’s Maryvale neighborhood, Western serves nearly 600 students in grades 7-12. There are 75,000 children in Maryvale, but zero high schools in that area with an “A” rating from the Arizona Department of Education.


Western School of Science and Technology: A Challenge Foundation Academy exists to transform Maryvale by improving low-income west Phoenix students’ opportunities for advancement in the global technological economy by providing needed preparation for the academic rigors of college graduation leading to career success.


Western CFA proposes to sustainably address the educational and economic needs of Arizona’s Latino youth. When the school is successful, it will provide a proof point in the Maryvale neighborhood that low-income underserved youth can access the educational skills necessary to be successful in the new economy, be prepared for college persistence and graduation, and become integral parts of Arizona’s new global economy. Western CFA aims to be the first “A” rated high school in the Maryvale neighborhood.
