SARRC’s Community School

Now Enrolling for the 2024-25 School Year

The Community School, a program operated by the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center, is a preschool that offers high-quality early childhood education for children without autism as well as ABA-based programming for children with autism — all in a blended classroom environment. 

The Community School emphasizes kindergarten readiness by creating a rich social environment that promotes social, emotional and academic development for all. Additionally, the program features a 4-to-1 student-teacher ratio where each student has a detailed and individualized learning plan.

We are enrolling for the 2024-25 school year starting July 2024 across our three campus locations in Tempe, Phoenix, and Scottsdale. Each campus features four classrooms on each campus serving students ages 15 months to 5 years old.


  • Small class sizes (maximum classroom size is 16 students)
  • A highly educated and enriching team
  • Play-based, developmentally appropriate curriculum focused on school readiness
  • July-June school year
  • And more!
