Provide Your Children With
A Traditional Education


Since the day we opened our doors in 1995, our K-8 program at Reid Traditional Schools’ Valley Academy has been so popular that we have operated at near capacity each year. However, some spaces usually open up in each grade level.

With the opening of Reid Traditional Schools’ Painted Rock Academy in August 2012, we are now better able to satisfy the demand for high quality, traditional education. Contact our staff today to learn more!

Additional Enrollment Information

You may request additional information by contacting Painted Rock Academy or Valley Academy directly. At the school websites, you can complete a Pre-Enrollment Application to add your child’s name to the waiting list.

You may make an appointment to tour the campuses by calling the school office. When you register your student, we will schedule a Skills Assessment to assist in proper academic placement. An offer of enrollment is based solely on waiting list position, not Assessment results. Contact our office today for more information!

Reid Traditional Schools Admissions Policy

Reid Traditional Schools are open enrollment public charter schools that do not charge tuition. If space is available in a grade level, students are enrolled in the school. We reserve the right to refuse to admit any pupil who is under the age of five years by September 1 of the enrollment year and any pupil who has been expelled from or who is in the process of being expelled from another educational institution.

We may give enrollment preference to and reserve capacity for pupils who are children, grandchildren or legal wards of any of the following: employees of the school; employees of the charter holder; members of the governing body of the school; directors, officers, partners or board members of the charter holder. We may give enrollment preference to and reserve capacity for pupils who attended another charter school or are the siblings of that pupil if the charter school previously attended by the pupil has the identical charter holder, board and governing board membership as the enrolling charter school or is managed by the same educational management organization, charter management organization or educational service provider as determined by the charter authorizer. (ARS 15-184(D) )
