Arizona Cultural Academy (ACA) is an Islamic private school located in southern Phoenix, Arizona. It is the second full-time Islamic school in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area, and as of 2007, has the highest enrollment figure among Islamic schools in Arizona. It is also the only Islamic school with a comprehensive K-12 program, the first graduates graduating in the Spring of 2006.


In 1996, plans were set to build an Islamic school in the valley. At the time, the only other full-time Islamic school in the city was Phoenix Metro Islamic School (PMIS). In 1997, a survey was conducted to gather data on the feasibility of location, demographics, and finance. By August 2001, ACA was ready to begin classes.
