Tuition-Free Private School in Tucson AZ

Founded in 2006, Imago Dei is a small, independent, tuition-free private school in Tucson, AZ offering grades 5-8 for children from low-income families. In the Episcopal tradition, Imago Dei provides small class sizes, individual attention, and an extended school day, week and year. We admit children of diverse faiths, races, cultures, and cognitive profiles.

Imago Dei depends for its financial strength on charitable and tax-credit donations from hundreds of individuals, businesses, and foundations who share our vision of breaking cycles of poverty through quality education.

All profits from Santa Theresa Tile Works, the iconic artisanal tile company, support Imago Dei, which actively builds community in Tucson through a variety of endeavors.
