We keep in touch with all of our alumni, encourage them to visit and use internet-connected computers set aside for their use, and provide them with assistance in researching and applying to post-secondary schools, as needed.
100% of the 143 graduates of Imago Dei school have gone on to attend the high schools of their choice, including Green Fields, The Gregory School, Salpointe, San Miguel, St. Augustine, University High, City High, and other public and charter high schools throughout Tucson.
More than 90% of IDMS alumni who are old enough have graduated from high school. This is in contrast to a four-year Arizona graduation rate between 60 and 70 percent for young people with similar demographics.
More than 80% of our high school graduates are pursuing post-secondary education.
We were thrilled to see members of the first two cohorts of IDMS alumni accepted to four-year institutions in 2015 – we now have our first bevy of graduates actually in college. Among the schools accepting them: University of Arizona, UA Eller College of Management, University of Oregon, University of Washington, San Diego State, Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, Brigham Young University, Academy of Art University (San Francisco), and University of Nevada at Las Vegas. In 2016, a graduate of our school was accepted for the first time to an out-of-state four-year college. In the May 2018, a member of our first graduating class – of eight children – graduated from the University of Arizona, exactly on time. (Woohoo!)
We look forward with excitement to seeing our graduates’ futures unfold.
