Thank you for helping our school children !!

Parents who have the primary and inalienable right and duty to educate their children must enjoy true liberty in their choice of schools. - Gravissimum Educationis, 1965

Fifty years later this quote from the Second Vatican Council is alive in Arizona! Because our great state has the private school tax credit program, our families here at Sacred Heart can freely chose a Catholic education regardless of their ability to pay.

Your state income tax dollars help our school at no additional cost to you. What you send to Catholic Education Arizona can be taken dollar-for-dollar off your state income tax bill. Contributors can also receive a 2016 federal tax deduction for their charitable gift!

Go to to take a tax credit and help these students!

Tax credits allow you to say where your money should be spent, so, keep your money right here in Prescott, helping families you already know!
