Chandler Preparatory Academy is a liberal arts charter school that was established in Chandler, Arizona in 2005 offering schooling from 6th to 12th grade. In 2010, Chandler Preparatory Academy celebrated its first graduating class and opened a new campus, with a football field and gym, in conjunction with Archway Classical Academy, a similarly-modeled program for K-5 students. Both Archway Classical Academy and Chandler Preparatory Academy are part of a larger network of charter schools, Great Hearts Academies.

Chandler Prep, because of its nature as a charter school, is a small school. The first graduating class consisted of fewer than fifty students, and the average class size is 22 students.

Chandler Prep follows a strict liberal arts curriculum. All students are required to follow a core curriculum with the addition of one foreign language (Latin and Ancient Greek, German, Spanish, or French) of their choice. The Fine Arts curriculum rotates between Art, Poetry, Music, and Drama. There is both an academic honor code and a uniform for all students.
