Sonoran Science Academy-Tucson is a K-5 public charter school, focused on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education.
We are a free, public charter K-5 school with a small-school atmosphere and emphasis in STEM education. Our staff members have worked together for many years, and have created a sense of community between students, families, and staff. We frequently hold family events, and pride ourselves on fostering a caring, supportive environment that also asks the best from our students. We work closely with SSA Tucson Middle/High School, which is located next door. SSA Tucson is focused on STEM education -- science, engineering, technology and math -- and college prep, with instruction in writing and the arts, and opportunities for healthy physical activity. We offer a learner-centered education with an emphasis on outcomes, visual aids, and technology integrated education. Our A-rated school participates in statewide and national math, science, and art competitions. We focus on skill-level education with individualized instruction. We emphasize a scientific approach, hands-on work, computer literacy and the ability of students to use data and articulate a thesis. What kind of future do you want for your student? If it's a career in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math, then our high performing, STEM-focused school might be the place for them. As a public charter school, SSA is tuition-free and open to the public.

Arizona law allows taxpayers to receive a tax credit of up to $200 for a single individual or a head of household and $400 for a married couple filing a joint return for donations that benefit students in Arizona public schools. It is not a deduction – it is a tax credit, reducing what your state tax liability dollar for dollar.
