Getting Smart partners with ASU Preparatory K-12 Academy Charter Network in Arizona to help launch new bricks/mortar schools, microschools for Prep Digital students, and strategy for growth and scaling. Through virtual meetings, on-site workshops and visits, facility committees, and strategic advisory, Getting Smart provides resources, connections, and artifacts in support of the ASU Prep team. Our focus is on connecting a large educational ecosystem to increase mission impact for the most number of learners.
