Students at Imago Dei participate in long-term projects that give back to the community and to the planet.

In recent years, projects have included design and installation of a water-harvesting system for the school building, reclamation of a dilapidated alley space behind the building and installation of an organic garden there, raising and selling organic seedling vegetables and bee-attractive plants at a farmer’s market, and design and distribution of vegetable gardening starter kits for distribution in Tucson’s urban “food deserts.”

Community Service helps Imago Dei scholars effect real change in the world while learning about social and environmental issues. It also gives them invaluable practical experience in entrepreneurship, principles of business management, teamwork, and salesmanship.

Strong working relationships with community partners such as UA’s Project WET and Intuit’s We Care and Give Back employee volunteer program make this possible for our children.
