Arizona Charter Academy named one of Arizona’s 100 best companies
Recently, Heather Henderson, principal at Arizona Charter Academy in Surprise learned that the school was selected as one of Arizona’s “100 Best” Companies.
For more than 10 years, BestCompaniesAZ has researched, developed and promoted some of the best places to work in the state by recognizing organizations like the charter school.
Arizona Charter Academy, 16011 N. Dysart Road, will be honored with a “Best of Heart” award, which is given to top companies that prospered through building sustainable relationships with employees, customers and the community. This is the first year for this award, which is named in honor of Arizona’s 100th birthday.
“It was a huge honor to learn that our school is being recognized with such a prestigious award for doing what we have strived to do from the very beginning,” Henderson said
“From our community events like blood drives involving students and staff to being involved with many other local organizations like the Elks, Benevilla, Rotary and the city of Surprise, we recognize the importance of reaching out to the community and working together with everyone around us. When the community has a need, our students step up.”
Henderson said the business community has also played a large role in the school, providing both volunteers and financial support. The school’s partnership with Grand Canyon University allows high school students to take college courses at a reduced rate.
As Chief Operations Officer for Arizona Charter Academy, Melissa Holdaway understands the importance of developing quality and lasting relationships with not only students and parents, but also her teachers, staff, and the local community.
Since it first opened its doors, Holdaway and rest of the staff at the charter school, located at 16011 N Dysart Rd. in Surprise, have worked hard to become more than just a place of learning, but also a valued and trusted member of the west valley.
Recently, Holdaway learned that the school was selected as one of Arizona’s “100 Best” Companies. For over 10 years, BestCompaniesAZ has researched, developed and promoted some of the best places to work in the state by recognizing great organizations like the charter school.
Arizona Charter Academy will be honored with a “Best of Heart” award, which is given to top companies that prospered through building sustainable relationships with employees, customers, and the community.
This is the 2nd year that the school has been named as one of the “100 Best” places to work in Arizona.
