Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards (AZCCRS) Home Page

Preparing Arizona students for college, career and life

Arizona education standards have long been implemented to ensure that all students have the academic knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in college, career and life. However, when it comes to improving educational outcomes, there are no substitutes for quality curriculum, effective teachers, efficient administrative leadership, and engaged parents.

By visiting this site, you understand that educating our children is an important responsibility. State standards help ensure that every Arizona child has a set of benchmarks that they must meet as they advance through elementary, middle and high school with the expectation that as an adult they will be ready for college or a career of their choice.
Not to be confused with curriculum, which is adopted at the school district level, they are a set of benchmarks that all Arizona children must meet as they move through the K-12 school system.
