Welcome to the website for Twenty First Century Charter Schools, Inc, known in our community for over 25 years as Bennett Academy. We are a small, free-public charter school in Phoenix, Arizona. Our students are in grades Kindergarten – 8th grades.
Our supportive classroom environments enable our students to achieve high levels of academic success with confidence and competence. We have an overarching focus on developing a student’s communication, critical reading, and thinking skills.
We care about our students and they know it! We offer a challenging, coordinated, comprehensive educational experience with high expectations. Our 3rd-8th grade students enjoy getting involved in Theatre and our 5th-8th grade students love to participate in our competitive sports programs.
We believe that a solid basic education using the Spalding method of reading and writing instruction will equip a student to be the best person he or she can be, now and in the future. This small peaceful community feels more like a family than a school.
