Where We Serve: Tucson

Tucson

Tucson is an awesome city. As the provider of beautiful sunsets, mountain views, and gorgeous scenery, the Old Pueblo has lots to offer. The home of the University of Arizona and their much beloved Wildcats, Tucson has a number of historic, social, and cultural areas. Fine Mexican dining, vibrant Mexican culture, and street festivals abound. Tucson boasts Saguaros galore and an occasional wild javelin. ACE Phoenix also happens to be two hours away.

We pride ourselves on upholding the Tucson tradition of sharing many meals together each week. Together we laugh in our living room, grade papers on our many couches, and watch various sports throughout the year. We can often be found attending events at each of the four schools which helps to establish a sense of community within the larger context of our Catholic schools.
