Average Rating for this Community

This is a really nice community. The housing is the best we saw in Tucson adult communities. It is a beautiful location. We ended up not buying in Tucson but would have loved living at Academy Village.


We purchased a beautiful home here last summer and really love the neighborhood. The ASA is spectacular and has so many great shows and events. They offer lots of informative seminars and outings, a library and computer center. We've learned a lot there. The people living at Academy Village are all very nice and friendly. Our home has a really unique look to it as do all of our neighbors homes we've been to.
