Northland Prep

Our Story

Northland Preparatory Academy is a 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 Cognia as well as a member of the Arizona Interscholastic Association for athletics.

Spartan Generosity

From its founding in 1996, NPA has depended on financial support from its community in order to supplement the limited funding provided the State of Arizona. This tradition of giving has allowed NPA to provide a higher quality of education to its students, both inside and outside the classroom.
