AT&T in Tuscon, AZ made an $800,000 contribution to three schools in Tuscon. This contribution is for scholarships for the Notre Dame ACE Academies in that area. This is great news for us as we embark on our partnership with ND ACE Academies beginning this July. This is an example of the type of support this relationship may provide to the communities of both Sacred Heart as well as St. Joseph’s School in Tampa.

Our scholarship equivalent is the Step-Up for Students Scholarships. Recently legislation to increase the cap on this tax-credit program passed the Florida Congress and has been presented to Gov. Scott for approval. Details can be seen here.
Together this is fantastic news for the future of Sacred Heart as we continue to grow in numbers and Faith.
