Calendar Change (see next section for COVID 19 school opening information)

Greetings Yavapai Accommodation School District Families:

Our school calendar has been changed! You can view the updated calendar here. We will be starting school online on August 10th and continuing online until students are allowed to return to the school building. Right now, students might be allowed to return to the school building on August 17th on a modified schedule but this date will likely be pushed to a later date. We will let you know of changes. It is vitally important that all students start online on August 10th instead of waiting until the school buildings open. We are reaching out to find out what immediate needs your family has in order to make online learning doable in your homes. Do you need a computer, a hotspot to connect to the internet, an internet connection in your home, or paper packets? We would like to assist in getting this set up for you as soon as possible so your student is ready to tackle online learning on August 10th when we return. Our reopening plans will be sent to you in the mail soon. You can also find this information on our website and Facebook page in the next couple of days.

If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Kellie Burns directly at 928 642 2109.

Welcome to the Yavapai Accommodation School District!

Yavapai Accommodation School District #99 serves the students of Yavapai County. We have two fully accredited high schools in our district.  Aspire High School is located in Prescott, and Yavapai County High School is located in Prescott Valley.

We serve a variety of students. Most students who enroll do so because they have fallen behind in their high school credits and wish to get caught up with the hopes of graduating on time.  Some students attend our school because a traditional setting in does not fit their needs.  Some come to us as a result of a lack of thriving in their classes, apprehension of attending larger schools, or simply because they enjoy the small class sizes and/or blended learning model that other schools do not offer. Other students attend our school because of the more individualized instruction and ability to work at their own pace.  Some come because of the 4-day school week and various sessions available.  No matter the reason, we have a team of caring staff that can help your high school student thrive in their quest to obtain a high school diploma.

We are a school utilizing blended learning using both online and traditional learning experiences with highly qualified teachers in the classroom.  Students’ learning and educational paths are tailored to their own needs.  We strive to increase the level of instruction of courses and engage students in more meaningful classroom activities and learning opportunities. We have computer based content and a full range of classes that can enable students to graduate from high school. Our teachers deliver instruction in the classroom for a portion of the time as part of their grade.

We have a 4-day school week, running Monday through Thursday.  Aspire High School students attend from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  Yavapai County High School students can choose from two sessions; the first session runs from 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM, and second session runs from 12:30 PM to 5:30 PM.
