A Message from Headmaster Scott

Dear Archway Trivium West Families,

I had the opportunity to walk through our new building this week. It was wonderful to see the progress. We have a second floor and framed in walls! We are well on our way to having a beautiful extension to our academy. The dedicated workers have begun connecting the new building to our existing building. With the vision of the finished product in my mind and the clanging of tools in my ears, I was able to welcome students back on campus following a much needed fall break. The combination brings to mind the hundreds of students currently on our wait list that will soon have doors opened for them to enjoy the amazing education received daily by our scholars.

As exciting as this idea is, it only captures the beginning of the work being done in the West Valley. For many years, I dreamed of building a classical charter school. That dream was realized as I took part in the founding of Archway Trivium East. That academy that I helped nurture in its infancy is now an established institution with ample strength of its own. This next year, Archway Trivium East will transform into Archway Roosevelt and will be paired with the new Roosevelt Prep. This marks a huge step forward for classical education in the West Valley by providing more opportunities than ever for a Great Hearts education. The benefit is not limited to new families. Some within our community drive upwards of 30 minutes or more just to drop their children off at school. A second location will afford many of these families a much easier commute, restoring to them leisure and family activity time that is currently being spent on the road. Next school year, some Archway Trivium East families will come to Archway Trivium West and Archway Trivium West families will go to Roosevelt. Some new families will join Trivium and others will join Roosevelt. However the shuffle comes together, approximately 2,500 students in the West Valley will be receiving a Great Hearts education! As hard as school-life has been lately, let us take a minute to enjoy the good things that are happening now that will allow even more good things to come.     

Heartily Devoted,

Dr. Clay Scott

Traffic Flow

Thank you for your patience and caution during student drop-off and pick-up. The safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance.

As a reminder, to minimize the backup of traffic on Encanto/Bullard before the end of the school day, we are closing the Encanto entrance to our school parking lot from 2:35-3:00pm. Goodyear Police will be monitoring traffic on Encanto and Bullard during this time, and if you are stopped on one of these roads waiting to enter campus, you may be ticketed. 

On Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday, families who are picking up Archway-only students should arrive to campus AFTER 3:10 PM. Families picking up both Archway and Prep students, please remind your Prep students to arrive to the pick-up zone promptly. 

On Wednesdays, families picking up BOTH Archway and Prep students are asked to arrive AFTER 1:40 PM. On Wednesdays, families picking up Archway-only should arrive at 1:25PM. 

Parents picking up Archway students from school MUST use the Archway pickup line. Prep students picking up Archway students to meet a parent driver may NOT load into a car in the Prep pick-up line or on Palm Lane. The entrance/exit to our parking lot from Encanto Blvd is right turn only.
