The Mission of Catholic Education Arizona

The mission of Catholic Education Arizona is to make it possible for underserved families in Arizona to provide a quality Catholic education for their children. Through the support of the tax credit, every child has an equal opportunity to pursue an education that allows them to reach their highest potential. Our organization provides both individual and corporate Arizona taxpayers to directly choose what their taxes support. 99% of the students of the Diocese of Phoenix graduate high school and 97% continue to post-secondary education or enter military service. That means that Catholic Education Arizona and Arizona taxpayers work together, investing in Arizona’s economy and the education of the next generation.
