The Academy Village and Altura have become partners in expanding this unique, nationally known, active adult community.  Altura is the name of the residential neighborhood, and the Academy Village embodies the lifestyle, amenities and village activities, in addition to the central campus of the village.  A highly regarded firm, Miramonte Homes, is the primary homebuilder.

At the heart of the renewed community is the Academy Village Campus consisting of the Arizona Senior Academy, the Home Owners Association Community Center, and the Academy Villas.  Together they emphasize learning, fitness and wellness, and aging in place–truly nurturing mind, body and spirit.

This vibrant and friendly retirement community is ideal for active, independent adults who have no intention of retiring from life. It is located in the foothills of the Rincon Mountains, just east of Tucson and next door to one of the nation’s great national parks. Cultural events, fitness classes, lectures, and a wide variety of interest groups will provide you with limitless possibilities for personal growth, well-being, and creativity.

Residents come from all walks of life and geographical locations. When built out, the community will total only 264 homes, making it easy for you to quickly become a part of the community.
