About Us

Arizona’s Catholic Tuition Support Organization CTSO under the Diocese of Tucson is a qualified tuition support organization that is proud to provide tuition assistance for students in 51 schools,  28 Catholic Schools within the Diocese of Tucson and 23 non-diocesan schools. If you link to one or all of the schools, it will become apparent that these fine schools help students become faith-filled individuals, provide them with strong academics, and emphasize the importance of service to one another and to their communities.

The State of Arizona has provided taxpayers an education tax credit since 1998. This means that for the 2022 tax year when you send a contribution of up to $2,483 if filing jointly or up to $1,243 if filing single, the State will provide you a dollar-for-dollar-tax credit based upon your tax liability. This is a wonderful way for individuals to provide tuition assistance for students in Catholic schools at no additional cost. If you choose not to participate in CTSO, the State will control those same tax dollars instead of you directing the dollars to a Catholic education.

Academically, students in Catholic schools have responded with scores that rank above the national average on achievement tests and greater than 95 percent of students graduate and go on to higher education. More importantly, students obtain an education centered on moral, academic and faith-filled values.
