• V.H. Lassen: Academy of Science and Nutrition

    A new academy, where young minds grow outside the classroom!

    Our new signature academy offers students of all grade levels a different way forward. Stepping out of the classroom and into the garden, our students experience a multi-disciplinary curriculum taught by certified teachers and local farmers. They will engage in hands-on learning as they discover how to grow, prepare and sell food from their own garden. With this program, we are rooting students in the importance of solving the fresh produce scarcity in South Phoenix.

    • Science and culinary-based program
    • Partnerships and field work opportunities with community organizations
    • Trips to Spaces of Opportunity
