ACU offers a Christ-focused community centered in the beautiful and vibrant city of Glendale, Arizona, a suburb of metropolitan Phoenix. With an average annual high of 80 degrees during the school year, you’ll always find students outside on our beautiful, tree-lined and grassy 68-acre campus — playing frisbee, participating in athletics, doing homework or expressing their musical talent. Our students – who come from 36 states and 23 foreign countries – love the weather here in Arizona!
