Tuition-Free Private School in Tucson

Founded in 2006, Imago Dei is a small, independent, tuition-free private school in Tucson offering grades 4-8 for children from low-income, under-resourced 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.

Where We Are:

We acknowledge present-day Arizona as the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Ancient
Puebloans, Huhugam, Mogollon and Salado, and their descendants who continue to live in
Arizona. We respectfully acknowledge that Imago Dei is on the unceded land of the O’odham peoples.
Today, Arizona is home to 22 federally recognized tribes, with Tucson being home to the
Tohono O’odham and the Pascua Yaqui. Committed to diversity, equity and inclusion, we strive
to build sustainable relationships with the original inhabitants of this land and their
descendants remembering history, recognizing their ongoing presence and contributions,
offering gratitude for their care of this land over countless generations, celebrating their
continuing culture, and reconciling systems to represent justice and dignity in hopes of
developing lasting and life-giving relationships.
