Santa Cruz is a Notre Dame ACE Academy. Learn more about this unique partnership through any of the links along the top, or you can start here.

The history and influence of Santa Cruz School reach back ninety years, and the school has educated thousands of Tucson children, many of whom have gone on to be leaders in the city.  Today, Santa Cruz School remains a vibrant and vital pillar of the community, providing students with an environment that is both challenging and loving. Their mission is to teach students to love God, self, and others, serve as a Christian community, and develop to their full potential.

Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (ESAs) allow many families who currently attend schools rated D or F by the Arizona Department of Education to receive as much as $3,500 in scholarship funds to attend the private school of their choice. Call Santa Cruz to learn more, or visit the ESA site.

Tax Credit Scholarships are available to many families to help provide their children with an excellent private education. Contact Santa Cruz to apply.
