BASIS Schools has been approved by the Arizona Board for Charter Schools to open a new campus in Ahwatukee Foothills.

The state board approved BASIS Ahwatukee on Monday.

BASIS Schools started in Tucson and has been nationally recognized for academic achievement. Serving fifth through 12th grades, it offers a rigorous, accelerated program that targets preparation for college.

After BASIS opened a school in Chandler last fall, demand was so great that the charter chain decided to seek approval for another site in Ahwatukee, which could open as early as fall 2012. BASIS officials hope to locate the new school within a couple of miles of Interstate 10.
