We believe Autistic students can become computer scientists. Eighty (80) percent of Autistic individuals are under 22 and will create a challenge for Metro Phoenix companies who will be unprepared to employ thousands of young adults who will enter the workforce.


Welcome to Science Prep Academy!

The reason why local educators, therapists, and community leaders decided to open Science Prep Academy is because of our dream to help create a more diverse and inclusive workforce. As an Amazon Future Engineer’s school, we offer coding classes and offer Advanced Placement (AP) computer science classes. We have FIRST Robotics Teams, which is a year-long project-based learning experience where students create robots and program them to compete in local, state and national tournaments.
