Come Visit Our Beautiful Campus and Region

Located just 45 minutes to the southeast of the beautiful northern Arizona city of Prescott (elevation 5,200 ft.), the community of Mayer, AZ, (elevation 4,200 ft.) is located in the heart of Prescott National Forest and ranching country. The Orme School is conveniently situated between two thriving cultural cities, with metropolitan Phoenix to the south of Mayer, a 90-minute drive away. The Orme School is near the geographic center of Arizona, about halfway between Phoenix and Flagstaff and three miles off Interstate 17, plus the great Grand Canyon is only a 155-minute drive from campus.

NOTE: The Orme School is not in Mayer, which is merely the nearest post office (Mayer is 20 miles away on a different highway).
