Back to classroom

We are now in our 9th week of in-person learning. During this time, we have had 0 student and 0 staff cases of COVID in our school. All student and staff testing has been negative. There are only 20 students who are not currently participating in the in-person learning, which means we have accomplished this success with 390 students and 50 staff members on campus by utilizing our mitigation strategies!

It is now time to move to the next step in the education of our students.

Friday, October 9th, will be the last day of virtual learning. All students will need to begin in-person learning on Tuesday, October 13th.

There are revised drop-off and pick-up schedules (see schedules below), which have helped to achieve our success. For those of you just coming back to campus, please review these with Mrs. Eddy. In addition, please take your child's temperature (must be less than 100 degrees) and send your child with a mask to wear throughout the day.

We look forward to having everyone back to campus!


Young Scholar’s Academy Charter School (YSA) is both a choice and a privilege. Our school is nestled along the eastern bank of the Colorado River in the tri-state area of Arizona. YSA is an integral pillar for our surrounding supportive communities of Fort Mohave, Mohave Valley, Oatman Topock, and Bullhead City. Our outstanding teaching staff, dedicated support staff, and the overwhelming commitment and involvement of our parents has made YSA our community's #1 choice for educational advantages.

We hope you will use our website to learn more about our school, our commitment to education, and join us as we cheer on the successes of our students. Whether you are looking for student registration information, grade-level openings, or our school calendar and events, you are always welcomed to contact us directly.

Director's Message

Dear Parents,

As you know, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has issued an executive order that all classrooms in Arizona remain closed for in-person learning until August 17th.  This date is a full two weeks beyond our scheduled start date.  We had two options to consider. 

First, we can delay any educational services until approved to begin classes on August 17th (if approval is given at that time).  If that were the case, we would then have to make-up those days at a later date sometime during the school year.

Second, we can begin distance learning until such time as we are allowed to hold in-person classes once again.  There are no make-up days required if this option is chosen.

Young Scholar’s Academy has chosen to begin the school year on August 3rd, as scheduled.  All students will be assigned to their new teacher and are expected to log-in on August 3rd to begin their classes.  The State Department of Education will require students to log-in and participate in classes, just as if they were in physical attendance.  THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT for your child’s learning as well as for school funding.  The teachers are putting great effort into lesson planning (they learned much during the instant forced closure earlier this year!).

Preschool classes will not begin until we have permission to physically attend classes on campus. 

In the very near future, emails will be sent with additional information.  Please keep watching for updates on the YSA page ( and the YSA Facebook page or call Mrs. Eddy or Mrs. Elias at 928-704-1100.

For those of you needing to check-out computers, please call Mrs. Eddy at 928-704-1100 to schedule a pick-up time.  In addition, your child’s teacher may attempt to contact you with further guidance.

Although this is not how we would prefer to start our school year, we, as a YSA family, will work together to give our students and families the best education possible!
