CAPITAL ENDOWMENTFor long-term campus and building improvement The University High School experience depends greatly on students learning from each other and holding each other to high intellectual standards. The time is coming when University High School may be able to have an entire campus to build a culture of greatness. The University High School student body continues to grow and the level of excellence continues to stay high. Taking ownership of our own campus will be achieved through political strength and financial resources, both of which will come via the UHSFAA.
PRINCIPAL'S DISCRETIONARY FUNDProviding resources where they are most needed now Typically, college preparatory schools have resources available for community activities such as college application workshops, and student recruitment events. Funding is available to celebrate and build on the success of the school through honorary alumni walls and alumni give-back events. Because of the way the Tucson Unified School District budget is structured, University High School is prohibited from funding these kinds of events. Too often, teachers and staff write personal checks to pay for necessary items. Your support will help UHSFAA enhance the reputation of University High School by allowing its principal to provide resources where most needed.
THE T-T-T EDUCATION FUNDTechnology, Textbooks and Tools, Direct to the classroom The TTT program is administered via the UHS Instructional Council, made up of the Faculty Heads of each UHS deparment. There are many projects that TTT money supports which go directly into a classroom project or inititiative. Each year the UHSFAA Board allocates $3000 to be dispersed in the form of small amounts (under $500 each) to specific teacher needs.

KEYS-TO-COLLEGE FUNDScholarships for Applying to College This fund will assist students with the fees associated with college entrance exams (such as the ACT and SAT), Advanced Placement tests, and college applications, as well as sending test scores and financial aid profiles to those various colleges.
