The wide variety of enrichment programming and extra-curricular activities round out the academics to make Self Development Academy the best choice of Mesa charter schools.  Violin and percussion lessons, literary analysis, drama, physical education, Spanish and Latin, community service projects, leadership development and special interest clubs provides students with opportunities to grow and shine outside of the academic classroom.
