Candeo Schools, a tuition-free, open-enrollment public-charter school is considering opening a classical education K- 8 school at 16060 W. Lower Buckeye Parkway in Goodyear. This was formerly the site of the Bradley/Creemos Discovery Academy that closed in January. A decision to open at that location will be made by the end of October. If Candeo goes forward with this school, it will open for the 2019-2020 school year.

Since its inception in 2008, Candeo has performed in the top 1% of all schools in the state. Candeo more than doubles the performance levels of other schools in reading, science, math, and writing. We believe college preparation begins in elementary school. We specialize in the early years of education through 8th grade, where cognitive growth is richest and academic habits are set. At our school, we intentionally and exceptionally build a love for learning, a broad base of essential knowledge, and strong habits of mind in the most formative years of life.
While vigorous academics and a nurturing environment are at the core of everything we do, we also pride ourselves on being fiscally responsible, operationally sound, and organizationally stable. We won’t just grow to grow. We will only open a new school when we are confident we can provide the stability and experience our students and their families have come to expect and deserve.
