******And Welcome to ‘Altura at Academy Village’. Academy Village has a new homebuilder who brings an additional name to our community: Altura. Though Academy Village and Altura are one and the same community, ‘Altura’ identifies the new home designs available from Miramonte Homes, the primary builder of the community. The new name also refers to a renewed emphasis on programs and facilities for active lifestyles. The robust emphasis on learning, including concerts, lectures, and courses, remains a core feature of the Village, as does the support for wellness and aging in place. Soon, however, these will be joined by renovated facilities for physical well-being, dining, crafts and many other activities.*****
Academy Village is a vibrant and friendly retirement community ideal for active, independent adults who have no intention of retiring from life. It is located in the foothills of the beautiful 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.
The village is uniquely designed to allow you the opportunity to pursue the next stages of your life among friends. Residents are engineers, physicians, nurses, teachers, attorneys, homemakers, business owners, professors, military, psychologists, astronomers, and more. The Village contains only 264 homes, making it easy for you to quickly become a part of the community.
At the heart of our village is The Arizona Senior Academy, a non-profit corporation devoted to life-long learning, thinking, and doing. Life in Academy Village will keep you engaged whether you plan to continue working, volunteer in community efforts, participate in educational or leisure activities, or discover an entirely new passion.
