How has CEA helped make Catholic education attainable and affordable for your family?  

I would like to express my gratitude to everyone that has supported and worked behind the scenes to make a Catholic education possible to my son. CEA has contributed to the education of my child by facilitating the easy and user-friendly application, as well as portal, online which makes it simple for me to complete and check. I am a busy single mom so to have the opportunity to fill out an application for scholarships online is a blessing. I am grateful to all the CEA staff members that keep me up-to-date on any scholarship news or organization updates and for always being kind, helpful and available to assist me with any questions I have. They make a difference in our life and help make sure my son is able to attend a Catholic school.

What does a Catholic education mean to you? 

“I want to thank everyone that has contributed to my education because without them I wouldn’t be able to attend a Catholic school. I believe a religious education is important to for me to be able to learn and grow spiritually in a world of many distractions and chaos.” -Ismael

How would you thank those that have helped make your education possible through their state tax dollars and encourage them to continue to support Catholic Education Arizona?

I don’t have enough words to tell each contributor how grateful I am for the wonderful opportunity they are creating for my son. My family and I keep each one in our prayers. We thank God for all those generous individuals and ask Him to bless them and their families. I encourage you to continue to contribute to such an amazing and important cause. Our children are the future and while higher education and school academics are very important for their success, we can’t forget that growing spiritually is far more important. At least in my opinion, as this will give these students true happiness and guide them through life, leading them to the path of heaven.
