Who We Are

  • Compadre Academy is the choice school of Tempe Union High School District (TUHSD). Compadre offers a community school feel with smaller class sizes and student body as well as one to one technology in every classroom. The cornerstone of Compadre Academy is individualized student support through our unique combination of daily intervention blocks, remediation courses, as well as credit recapturing options all designed to provide students access and opportunity to reach their goals. Our school is exemplary in its non-traditional delivery of curriculum and relationship-building with students.


    Compadre is committed to excellence in teaching and learning and developing academic knowledge and life skills for all students to pursue meaningful and fulfilling post-secondary choices where they can make change in their community. Additionally, research indicates that programs alone do not make students successful; rather, it is the relationship-building together with a quality program that changes lives. Compadre takes particular pride in its dedication to building relationships with all students.


    At Compadre, we serve a wide spectrum of students, from those who wish to move ahead and graduate early to those who feel more comfortable in a small-school environment, to those who are looking to recapture credits. We invite you to Run with the P.A.C.K.!


    Compadre is located at the corner of Guadalupe and Kyrene roads within the Tempe Union High School District Office Complex. Students wanting to attend Compadre Academy must complete the application process.
