Important Update Regarding The Girls Innovation Academy

Dear Girls Innovation Academy Parents and Guardians,

On Thursday, March 24, 2022, the Alhambra School District will hold a public hearing to receive public input and comment regarding the potential closure of the Girls Innovation Academy, 4730 W. Campbell Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona.  The hearing will be held at 6 pm in the Governing Board Room at 4510 N. 37th Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona.

The Governing Board is considering this action for the following reason:

To move Girls Innovation Academy (GIA) students to the Choice Learning Academy (CLA) to ensure the District remains fiscally sound.  The Girls Innovation Academy will create a fourth academy located within the Choice Learning Academy campus.  This move will extend GIA’s unique and modern resources to a larger number of students.  The CLA campus will preserve and protect the vision behind the Girls Innovation Academy.

If the Governing Board decides to close the Girls Innovation Academy, no boundary changes will occur.

A Governing Board meeting to vote on the school closure is scheduled on April 7, 2022.  The District will continue to keep you updated on the process by placing information on our website at


Dr. Cecilia Maes


Alhambra Elementary School District
