Our Values

Our Mission

Our mission is to nurture students' inner spirit of curiosity, inspire students to develop intrinsic motivation to achieve scholarly potential, empower students to take ownership of their learning, foster passion for life-long learning, and promote the merit of serving the community. Each student who graduates from Self Development will embody the 4 R's - they will be responsible, ready for continued academic success, respectful, and resilient.

Our Vision

The Self Development Academy vision is to nurture capable, thriving students who are equally confident in their scholastic abilities and their responsibilities to their communities.

Our Philosophy

The school's philosophy of self-development emphasizes the importance of self-awareness, self-knowledge, and self-acceptance.

Self-development encompasses the acceptance of one's weakness as well as strengths and enhances self-esteem. Enhanced self-esteem increases self-efficacy. Self-efficacy helps individuals remain steadfast in pursuit of their goals. Confident individuals perceive problems as challenges that can be overcome.

Self-development results in an improved sense of self-control and self-discipline, which in turn, leads to success in school, college, and life beyond.

We emphasize to all of our students what we call the 4 R’s. They represent the fundamental and core ethics that students must foster. The Four R’s Are:

  1. Respect
  2. Responsibility
  3. Readiness
  4. Resiliency

Self Development Academy is ranked as one of the best elementary charter schools in Phoenix and Mesa, Arizona.
