Founded in 1995, Sedona Charter School is the oldest charter school in Arizona. Over the years, this school has established a place of honor within the educational reform movement and among families who value excellence in education.
After six years in temporary locations, we moved into our permanent campus in 2001. Now at full capacity, the campus houses 160 students. In this small-school atmosphere, our students reach high levels of academic achievement, scoring well on standardized tests, winning in national and regional language, arts, science, and math competitions, and going on to become leaders and high-performing students in high schools and universities across the country.

Healthy Organic Hot Lunches
We are proud to offer hot lunches prepared by Culinary Creations by Beth. Beth’s motto is “Love in Every Bite,” and you can taste it in her food! All natural and organic ingredients, hormone-free meat and dairy, vegetarian and vegan options every day.
Our advanced math students soar with instruction from former engineer Richard Byrnes. Honors math is explored in the quiet space of our historic little log cabin. After spending time in Mr. Byrne’s class, students love the challenge of solving complex problems, and are well-prepared for rigorous, high-level courses in high school.
Musical Strings Instruction for Grades 1 through 8
We believe that the enjoyment, respect and knowledge of music and the development of the skills necessary in creating and performing music enhance learning, enrich quality of life and nourish the human spirit. Therefore, our mission is to provide a foundation, at an early age, for lifelong engagement with music. All students in grades 1 through 3 learn to play the violin and perform in concerts at least twice per year. In grades 4 through 8 students who continue in the program may branch out to viola or cello, and as their skill grows, they join our orchestra. The orchestra performs in several concerts per year, including concerts with the professional musicians of the Verde Valley Sinfonietta.
Music and Theater
Sedona Charter School students have many opportunities to develop performance and presentation skills, beginning with singing and playing recorders and developing multi-media history presentations in Lower Elementary, to Mystery History and end-of-year plays in Upper Elementary, to dynamic theater productions and choral performances in Middle School.
