 HIGHER EDUCATION
 Franklin Pierce University

 

In addition, the City of Goodyear has been proactively recruiting private institutions of higher education and has been having talks with Arizona State University about a future Goodyear campus. Goodyear welcomed its first excellent private institution of post-secondary education to the community in 2008 - Franklin Pierce University from New Hampshire. In June 2009, Franklin Pierce began their Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program in Goodyear. Franklin Pierce's Goodyear center also offers a series of online undergraduate and graduate programs.

The presence of this private university represents the culmination of a concerted effort by the Goodyear City Council and staff to bring smaller, private schools of higher education to Goodyear to round out our quality of life and fill an educational niche that is lacking in Arizona.

Local area institutes for higher learning include Estrella Mountain Community College (part of Maricopa Community College District), Arizona State University-West Campus, Grand Canyon University, Midwestern University-Glendale and Thunderbird School of Global Management. Other valley-wide offerings are Arizona State University, DeVry University, Keller Graduate School of Management, and the University of Phoenix each providing a variety of accelerated academic and occupational programs. Additionally, Park University, located on Luke AFB, is a four-year institution that provides reduced tuition to military, their dependents as well as civilians living in the surrounding communities. 

    Other notable schools in the West Valley include:  Estrella Mountain Community College,
ASU West Campus, Grand Canyon University, Midwestern University, Park University

 

WEST-MEC

 

West-MEC was created to help students find a faster way forward in life. Career and Technical Education continuously proves to keep students engaged in school and West-MEC believes that Career and Technical Education is key to the success of our students and for growing a strong economy in Arizona.  West-MEC partners with local high school and community colleges to provide Central Programs at additional locations.
