Feel the excitement for learning . . . Feel the sense of community
Rancho Solano Private Schools offer college-preparatory preschool through high school education. We provide an accelerated curriculum at five campuses throughout the valley. Since 1954, we have offered exceptional academics in a safe and supportive atmosphere. Our students are a community of learners who are responsible, respectful, considerate and successful.
Much of the true value of a Rancho Solano education lies in the intangibles. A quality education teaches students to be critical thinkers, principled leaders and ethical, world citizens. Students also challenge themselves in the arts and athletics, as well as community service and extracurricular activities. They uncover hidden talents and develop a passion for learning.
Rancho Solano is accredited (NIPSA, AdvancED) and offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and a college-preparatory, independent-school education. It is a Meritas school serving families in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
