It largely depends on what one intends to do or wants to see. The Museum of Northern Arizona (http://www.musnaz.org)?has the largest public collections, but if this student has a research interest and wants access to research materials, they will need to discuss that with the curator of Anthropology Dr. Kelly Hayes-Gilpin.
It's a big area out here, so if visiting publically accessable sites is what they want, NPS has several within a 150 mile radius (Wapatki, Moctezumas Castle, Navajo Nat'l Mon. Walnut Canyon, Tuzegoot). The Forest Service has a big rock art site east of Sedona called the V-Bar-V.
I'm not sure there are any "don't miss sites" outside Chaco Canyon, and Bandelier Nat'l Mon ;-)?
Wapatki is good and close. If you're in good shape, Batatakin ruin at Navajo National Monument is excellent, and Keet Seel (also at Navajo Nat'l Mon., which requires a special permit in advance, and is a 8 mile hike one way through Laguna Wash, is a very rare treat. I did research at NNM and love it there.

One of my adult students has emailed me this: "I am planning a 10 day visit to the area around Flagstaff Arizona this Summer. I have been researching sites and collections in the area and it is clear that I will not be able to visit them all. Would you be willing to provide a list of "don't miss" sits or point me toward a resource that could help?"
Well, I'm really not that knowledgeable about AZ archaeology apart from what I just learned at our meetings. I'll have to do some research on my own, but if anyone has any suggestions for my student, please let me know.
