Celebrating 25 Years of Changing Lives!

About Our Mission

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.

Scholarships Awarded

Providing scholarships to underserved children since 1998

Through support of the tax credit, every child has equal opportunity to pursue an education that allows them to reach their highest potential. 99.4% of our students graduate and additionally, 97% matriculate to advanced education or enter military service.

Supported by 131 Corporate Partners

Our corporate partners have turned their Arizona State Tax Liability into an investment in education and the future of Arizona’s children. Catholic Education Arizona (CEA) is dedicated exclusively to the support of tuition costs for low income or underserved students.

Our Individual Contributors Make a Difference

Arizona’s private education tax credit empowers individuals to choose what their tax dollars support and greatly impact Catholic schools to reach underserved students.
