The purpose and intent of the LDI Residential High School Program is to provide an innovative pathway toward students receiving an internationally recognized, fully-accredited high school diploma — not a certificate of attendance or completion. The high school program does not restrict or limit personal growth and development to only academic pursuits. In addition, academic curriculum and methodologies provide students with an opportunity to concurrently gain work experience, begin to plan a career and take dual enrollment courses at the local community college. Students enrolled in this program also experience independent-living while assuming some financial responsibilities AND earn a high school diploma at the same time.

Private schools in Arizona do not require Accreditation, Registration, Licensing or Approval from the state. A private school is defined as “a nonpublic institution, other than the child’s home, where academic instruction is provided for at least the same number of days and hours each year as a public school.” The laws of Arizona go on further to say “Nothing in this title shall be construed to provide the state board of education or the governing boards of school districts control or supervision over private schools.”
Although a teaching certificate is not required to teach at a private school, students are required to be provided instruction in the subjects of reading, grammar, mathematics, social studies and science.”
Private schools must adhere to the safety programs and drills set out by the fire marshal as well as follow safety standards regarding educational activities. Arizona places criminal penalties on people selling drugs within the school zone and school personnel are responsible for placing signs and other indicators that the facility is a drug-free zone.
