A better alternative in education.

In 1994, Blueprint Education partnered with school districts in the greater Phoenix area, and pioneered a movement for innovative alternative education in Arizona. Each year, Inspire Academy (formerly Blueprint Alternative Education Program) continually serves many local districts, schools, and children in grades 3 to 8.

Always improving our design with the goal of our students at the forefront.

Inspire Academy employs innovative teaching and learning techniques to inspire, empower and transform students, families and communities. Inspire Academy provides a structured environment with firm standards; a behavior modification program with goal setting, checks and balances, and recognition; a age/grade appropriate curriculum and engagement activities that move education forward while at the same time providing critical behavioral support and positive reinforcement for the whole student.

Geared for student possibilities.

Inspire Academy gives hope to students at risk of tuning out or giving up. We offer an elementary school model for 3th to 8th graders that provides an off campus placement setting so students aren’t distracted by their original environment. For the student, Inspire Academy provides an added opportunity for success in school. Our smaller class size with flexible instruction and learning level options can be individualized for each student’s level of learning.


Giving hope to school districts.

Inspire Academy allows school districts to join in a cooperative ownership for quality alternative education. We establish a contract with each student for goal setting and subject completion, then plan and check timelines, study and evaluative sessions. We also send frequent progress reports to parents and the student’s school so everyone stays on the same page. Inspire Academy offers an option to full expulsion, help to separate the student from negative influences, and reinforcement of attendance requirements, dress codes and behavior standards.

Our current partner districts include:

  • Balsz Elementary School District
  • Glendale Elementary School District
  • Phoenix Elementary School District
  • Washington Elementary School District
  • Wilson Elementary School District
