OVERVIEW— The Academy Village community is a diverse, supportive and welcoming group of neighbors who have discovered a new way of retiring. On any given day, you may find a presentation on local geology, a yoga class, a first-rate concert, an art group exploring watercolors, a guest lecturer speaking on music theory, or a resident leading a discussion on astronomy. The Village is a 55+ Planned Community regulated by IRS, Chapter 16. Three organizations provide services to the homeowners (an organizational chart may be viewed here):

The Academy Village Homeowners Association (AVHOA) strives to preserve the architectural integrity of the Village, maintain the common areas, protect property values, and manage the operation in accordance with federal, state, and local laws, while providing certain defined services–such as the fitness program–and promoting a sense of community. It offers a number of amenities, and engages residents in social activities that bring the community together. The monthly dues are $195.00 per lot. The HOA amenities received by homeowners for these dues are here.

Cadden Management manages the tasks of the The Homeowner’s Association, and the Academy Village CC&R’s, Amendments and other documents may be found on the Cadden Management website.

The Arizona Senior Academy (ASA) is an affiliate of the University of Arizona and was established to ensure that active engagement with civic life, intellectual stimulation and cultural enrichment could continue throughout retirement. Its weekly concerts feature world-class musicians, while twice-weekly lectures keep members current on the widest possible range of topics. The Academy also encourages individual and group outreach efforts allowing members to share their time and talents for the greater good. All Villagers age 60 and over automatically become members of the ASA. The required monthly dues are $75 per resident aged 60 and older, and residents under 60 may become members by voluntarily paying dues (see ASA dues policies here). Many amenities are received by ASA members for their dues, including using the University of Arizona library.  Other amenities may be seen here.

The Academy Services Corporation (ASC) is a support organization for the Arizona Senior Academy, chartered for the purpose of providing services to the members of the ASA. Currently these services pertain to health and wellness services in the Village, including home health care, nursing services in the wellness Center, and assisted living services in the Academy Villas. All services are fee-based.

And where did Academy Village get its name? A recent article in The Arizona Daily Star answers this question: Village for Retirees.
