Welcome

VISION

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.

 
GENERAL INFORMATION
 
The Suns-Diamondbacks Education Academy (SDEA) is the only school in the nation named after two professional sports teams and is currently located at 2920 North Seventh Street in Phoenix.
 
This alternative program is designed to help students complete their high school education in a small learning environment with specialized classes and schedules. Since 2001, SDEA has increased student enrollment from 30 to 250 and has graduated over 1,100 students.  Graduation ceremonies are held twice a year in December and May. Graduates are recognized at the end of every term during an awards ceremony.

SDEA is intended for juniors and seniors who have fallen behind in their credits and will benefit from the small school environment. Students are selected for admission based on transcript, discipline, and an interview process. Students are admitted at the start of each 6-week term throughout 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. Minimum assistance and resources are offered to our special education students. Students will also have the opportunity to earn extra credits by enrolling in a third period online credit-recovery class as part of their schedule. 
 
SDEA will relocate to a new state-of-the-art facility on Thomas Road starting the 2016-2017 school year and will accommodate up to 400 students.
