About NPA

Mission Statement

Northland Preparatory Academy provides a coordinated, individualized program of study that promotes academic excellence and provides educational opportunities for serious middle and high school students, regardless of  gender, ethnic origin, economic or academic ability.


Northland Preparatory Academy is a tuition-free public charter school located in Flagstaff, Arizona currently serving 640 students in grades 6-12. Founded in 1996 by a group of parents determined to provide a rigorous education for their children, NPA is a thriving learning community and has already established an excellent track record of preparing students for college success. NPA does not have selective entrance requirements; its students gain admission through a lottery which determines a waiting list for available spots. NPA is fully accredited by the North Central Association/AdvancEd as well as a member of the Arizona Interscholastic Association for athletics.
