Education is an important element of any community. The central Arizona region is fortunate to be supported by excellent elementary and high school programs, a county wide community college system, Central Arizona College, and world class universities: Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona.
The communities of Casa Grande, and Eloy are supported by seven different school districts representing elementary, middle and high schools. The total student K-12 population is greater than 17,000. In addition to the various high schools, the Central Arizona Valley Institute of Technology, a Joint Technology Education School District, supports junior and senior students in the central Arizona region by offering training programs for high demand jobs.
Central Arizona College supports county wide education through 4 campuses and 7 satellite locations across the county. In addition to the traditional courses offered by the college, Central Arizona College partners with businesses to enhance the abilities and skills of their employees through existing or custom made programs.
Strategically located between two world class institutions of higher education, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona, central Arizona benefits from the proximity to highly ranked programs ranging from business and engineering to education and nursing. In addition, Northern Arizona University offers many programs on the Central Arizona Campus such as bachelor programs in business and education, and select masters programs.
