The mission of the Arizona Catholic Schools Disabilities Fund is to work in partnership with Catholic schools in the Diocese of Phoenix in embracing students that have exceptional needs.
Responding to the Church's teaching of justice and pastoral care, children with exceptional needs are to be included in the full life of the Church. This inclusion extends to the Church's educational mission: "By reason of their evangelizing mission, Catholic schools should be available to all people who desire a Catholic school education for their children." Exceptional students should be afforded the opportunity to demonstrate their academic abilities and talents in a Catholic School. A Catholic school is an ideal environment that nourishes and enhances the academic, personal and faith formation of all God's children. The school community is greatly enriched and enlightened by the presence of these exceptional students.
