Tucson

Located at the former site of Townsend Middle School, the Flagship campus encompasses a 50,000 square foot building and 25,000 square foot courtyard. The former school was repurposed and the interior has been completely remodeled to showcase large classrooms, spacious study areas, real-world labs and training facilities as well as a nursing simulation lab with arena seating.

Founded in Tucson in 1972, this new campus cements the legacy of our founder, Richard Luebke Sr., and further illustrates the commitment to the community, students and staff.
