About Us


Desert Heights Preparatory Academy fosters college and career readiness with equal focus on academic excellence, social awareness and integrity of character. We build college resumes with competitive athletic programs, fine arts opportunities and clubs such as Honors Societies and Student Councils. We backwards map our curriculum with a focus on readiness for Advanced Placement coursework starting the freshman year of high school. The school day is extended to meet a normal work day schedule and opportunity to complete the majority of assignments during instructional periods. Homework is also minimal due to the project based instructional opportunities. Technology is integrated into all curriculum units to prepare students for college and career expectations. High school students are provided iPads and encouraged to use multi-media in their learning and presentation of proficiency.
