Junior Achievement

Desert Heights Preparatory Academy has partnered with Junior Achievement of Arizona ("JA") and starts implementing its programs in 5th grade. We incorporate their curriculum to allow students to make a real life connection and to have some creative insight on career fields for the future.

JA's volunteer-delivered programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential. With programs designed to help students learn to manage their money, be ready to enter the workplace and to think innovatively, Junior Achievement of Arizona is the perfect partnership for DHPA. While at DHPA, students have an opportunity to participate in the class curriculum activities and may qualify to attend the workshops, competitions, and events off campus.
