Welcome to
BASIS Oro Valley!

BASIS Oro Valley opened in 2010, and was the first BASIS Charter School building designed and built specifically to serve BASIS Curriculum students. Our “little sister” school, BASIS Oro Valley Primary, was built in 2014, expanding our reach to include students in grades K–5. BASIS Oro Valley and BASIS Oro Valley Primary are happy to serve the Oro Valley community and take pride in the fact that we are consistently ranked as one of the top 10 high school in the country.

BASIS Oro Valley graduating classes continue the tradition of a 100 percent college acceptance rate to four-year institutions and earn on average $3 million dollars in renewable merit aid from Arizona universities alone. BASIS Oro Valley is a fantastic place to learn, and we look forward to all of the wonderful things we are going to do as a community.

School Highlights

  • BASIS Oro Valley was also fortunate enough to have all eight of our National Merit Semifinalists move on to become Finalists. This was a first in BASIS Oro Valley history.
  • Erika S., a Class of 2017 graduate, won the prestigious Founders’ Prize for excellence in collaboration between student and adviser. Her project, featured in the BASIS Diploma Senior Project Exposition, focused on the butterfly effect and how it applied to the 2016 presidential election.
  • Jeremiah P., another Class of 2017 graduate, was awarded top honors at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair for his Senior Project, “Curing Parkinson’s Disease Using the Body’s Own Cellular Defenses.” Jeremiah was one of seven students selected for the grand prize from a pool of over seven million students and as a result had the opportunity to attend the Nobel Prize Awards in Sweden.
  • BASIS Oro Valley hosted its first annual “Project Graduation” as a result of a Senior Project. Krystin Vidal worked hand in hand with council member Mary Snider as well as Canyon Del Oro high school to help create a memorable Back to the Future–themed event. The evening was a huge success, providing a safe, fun place for seniors to celebrate on graduation night.
  • BASIS Oro Valley was incredibly excited to send three division one athletes to college. Daniela L. will be swimming for Harvard, Alexander N. will be swimming for Cal Poly, and Trevor H. will be golfing for William and Mary. GO JAGS!
  • BASIS Oro Valley was officially designated as a No Place for Hate school by the Arizona Anti-Defamation League. This was due to the hard work of our peer diversity members. Teachers Helen Baker and Adrienne Fluitt attended the banner presentation in Phoenix with seniors Bodo L. and Erika S.
