We know that learning does not just take place within the four walls of a classroom, so we provide opportunities to support students beyond them!


We fund Stipends for Academic Travel so students can attend events such as Odyssey of the Mind World Finals and SkillsUSA competitions. The benefits of academic travel are invaluable, allowing students to have more cultural and global awareness and experiences that can change the trajectory of their future. Academic travel is especially powerful for students whose families have not had easy access to personal travel experiences. When traveling, they gain a new perspective on their future.


Each spring, we’re proud to award several scholarships to graduating seniors. For many years, we have offered the David B. Upshaw Future Teacher Scholarship to students who plan to pursue a career in education, celebrating our future changemakers! We also offer Amphi Family Scholarships for students who have grown up with a caregiver or parent who is an Amphi employee. These students share humorous stories of extra hours spent in classrooms or at school. Finally, we offer the Elizabeth Andersen Student Award to seniors at Amphi High, presented by the AHS Class of 1966 in honor of their beloved classmate.


Through a generous partnership with the Tucson Conquistadores, we provide Athletic Fee Waivers for eligible students. This investment has a particularly strong impact on students enrolled in our Title 1 schools. With the rising costs (and commitment expectations) of club sports, school related athletic programs are one of the most cost-effective ways for our community’s children to learn a sport and be part of a team. The majority of students in our Title 1 schools request a waiver to play. Our continued partnership has a direct impact on these students’ lives. 


We proudly support Life Beyond the Books, which brings volunteer professionals in the community into classrooms of Amphi 8th graders to teach valuable life skills, such as how to change a car tire, basic budgeting, civic duty, first aid, customer service, and more. Students are given a relevant item to take home and practice their new skill. The vision of this program is that all students will be self-sufficient and ready for life.


We also proudly support two long-standing Summer Programs in Amphi. The Amphi Summer Basketball Camp and the Keeling Summer Fitness Club promote teamwork and personal growth. These opportunities help meet the needs of families in our community by providing a safe, fun place for kids to go during the summer. Students are active, learning, building friendships and making unforgettable memories in these environments.
