Hi, I'm hoping that someone can help me. I need to create an atlas that will keep the same scale for each data frame but change the page size for each page in the atlas. This is because in the index layer each tile is a different size for the area of interest .  I have only been using python for a short time and looking to be pointed in the right direction.

Thank you,
Chris

It is not possible to change pagesizes with arcpy. 

The best workflow would be to author an individual MXD for each pagesize.  Then generate each page of the atlas using the appropriate MXD.

A great example of this in help is Creating a Map Book with Facing Pages:
