Headmaster Letter
Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,
 
I was encouraged to learn today that the Governor’s office and Arizona Legislative leadership worked through the weekend to draft the final language of the state budget so that it could reach the house floor today. It then enters the requisite three-day review period and will be up for a floor vote likely on Wednesday or Thursday. We are told it will pass.
 
This week’s vote is a welcome step in the right direction. We look forward to continuing to advocate on behalf of our amazing teachers and protecting the culture of our academies while delivering our classical, liberal arts education model in the years ahead.
 
Thank you for all you do to support our school.
 
Please reach out directly with any questions.
 
With Devotion,

Headmaster Weinhold
