What is Promise for the Future? 

Promise for the Future is an educational initiative made possible through a partnership between Central Arizona College, the Central Arizona College Foundation, and Pinal County Middle and High Schools. Promise for the Future was designed to encourage students who reside in Pinal County to remain in high school and graduate from a Pinal County high school.  The Promise for the Future program inspires students to reach their full potential by challenging them to  

  •  graduate with a minimum 2.75 grade point average  
  •  participate in 20 hours of community service (Community Service Form) 

Students who successfully meet Promise for the Future Guidelines will be eligible for a tuition-free education at Central Arizona College.

# Take on the promise

#Take On the Promise 

It’s not easy being the outlier that the statistics didn’t except, couldn’t predict. Being the one to don your cap and gown when every number presented say that you can’t, in fact won’t. That the color of your skin or socioeconomic background will be the deciding factor in whether you graduate High School. They don’t expect your grit or gumption, but we do. Use #Takeonthepromise on social media to show the world what we already know, Pinal students can do it!
