Dear Students, Parents, and Community Members:

Welcome to our district web site. Thank you for taking time to explore and learn more about the academic and extracurricular programs we offer. We understand there are many options available for parents when it comes to making educational choices.

The Agua Fria Union High School District offers comprehensive preparation for both college and career pathways. Our graduating students are successfully transitioning to university life, military careers, and a wide range career training opportunities. We have been working diligently to increase our advanced placement offerings including Honors, Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and International Baccalaureate® (IB) classes. We recently made a budget commitment to pay for American College Testing (ACT) and have expanded the range of AP courses and tests available to our students. Our alternative program, Coldwater Academy, also offers on-line opportunities on each of our campuses for credit recovery, and in some cases, original credit. We continue to be fully accredited by the North Central Association (NCA), and remain as a (B ranked) preferred status district in the state of Arizona.

Along with these rigorous academic offerings, we are an active partner district with West-MEC, which provides a wide range of career preparation programs ranging from Engineering to Computer Sciences. Each of our four campuses hold advisory sessions, college readiness discussions, and provide scholarship search assistance to help families explore their future planning.

Please enjoy the information on our district web site, and be sure to check out each of our four high school web sites for additional information on site specific curricular and extracurricular programs. I'm confident you will find our schools to be a competitive choice when it comes to preparing for college and life opportunities beyond high school. 

Yours in education,

Dr. Dennis Runyan
