Sunnyside C.A.T.S.


In order to create a greater University of Arizona-going culture within the Sunnyside Unified School District, we have joined UArizona to create a comprehensive partnership: Sunnyside C.A.T.S. (Connecting for Access & Transition Success) to provide student support around college preparation, planning, and social integration to familiarize high school students with the university campus, community, and culture.

Goals of the Program

  • Increase enrollment of Sunnyside and Desert View High School graduates to the University of Arizona
  • Provide college preparation resources and support specific to the SUSD community
  • Assist in preparing students for STEM fields
  • Ease the transition from high school to college by providing opportunities to engage socially and academically
