Our college-preparatory program offers a wide variety of classes, including AP courses, STEM, and English as a Second Language support (ESL). Our graduates have been accepted to some of the most prestigious colleges and universities across the country.


The fine arts offer ways for our students to express their creativity and unique gifts beyond academics and athletics. ALA provides a wide range of fine arts experiences on campus. Students can participate in classes, extracurriculars, and activities in the areas of music, theater, and the visual arts. Learn more about Fine Arts at ALA here.


Go Coyotes! Athletics is an exciting part of life on Arizona Lutheran Academy’s campus. All students are encouraged to try out for a sport, and many ALA students participate on multiple teams during the year. Participating on a sports team helps international students make friends, learn skills, and experience American culture. For a full list of sports teams, visit ALA’s Athletic Program Page.


ALA is a warm, welcoming community of students, families, and teachers. Beyond academics, athletics, and the arts, students at ALA have many opportunities to get involved in clubs, leadership groups, and a wide variety of events on campus. These experiences not only look great on college applications, but also help our students form great relationships with their classmates and teachers. Learn more about Student Life at ALA here.
