Tucson Education


Tucson offers exceptional education opportunities, and a cost of higher education that is 25 percent below national norms. Excellent public and private schools are available from the pre-school level through high school. Tucson has over 30 private and parochial schools for all ages. College bound students will find suitable preparatory programs to help them reach their full potential.

The University of Arizona, a world-class research and teaching institution, offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in more than 100 different fields. The multi-campus Pima Community College system, eighth largest in the nation, is extremely pragmatic and willing to work with the Greater Tucson Economic Council to develop specific training programs for selected companies. Pima College's new Advanced Manufacturing Extension Center, financed by a grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, can provide technical assistance at the work site to support the needs of small to medium sized manufacturing firms.

Tucson's educational system reflects on the community's diversity offering programs at all levels that meet the needs of both student and employer. Schools offer programs designed to meet the needs of students in all areas including gifted, honors, bilingual, vocational, special needs, and business skills programs. Advanced placement programs help students develop creative thinking and reasoning skills which help them gain a better understanding of the world. Private vocational and business schools with programs that prepare students for entry into the job market are thriving.
