Tucson is home to many great schools and a number of post-secondary educational institutions. The major ones, along with contact information, are listed here. Information on the numerous private schools in Tucson is not listed as it would be impractical to do so; instead, I will refer you to GreatSchools.org for an easily searchable and sortable list.
The University of Arizona is Tucson’s most recognized school and Arizona’s first university. With just under 30,000 undergraduate and 8,000 graduate students enrolled, it is currently the second-largest university in the state. “The U” was founded in 1885 and is recognized as a Public Ivy.
Pima Community College has six campuses within the Tucson metropolitan area, with a combined undergraduate enrollment of 62,000. Pima is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
In addition, there are several other institutions of higher education throughout the city, such as The Art Institute of Tucson, four University of Phoenix campuses, and a branch campus of Northern Arizona University.
Tucson has several major school districts. To learn more about each, visit their websites and find more info and comparisons at SchoolMatters.com.
