It is the only Arizona school to receive this designation in 2020.

The CPN Seal of Prevention is a clear and visible signal of institutional investment, distinguishing campuses utilizing rigorous, high-impact digital prevention programs. The criteria for the Seal were developed from research-based best practices, translated into technology metrics and quality standards including theory driven, socio-culturally relevant, comprehensive and appropriately timed programs.

"The SCNM Community is honored to receive the CPN Seal of Prevention," said Dr. Paul Mittman, president & CEO of SCNM. "We strive to fulfill the principles of effective prevention by adhering to evidence-based theory and practice, integrating varied learning methods, fostering positive relationships and measuring outcomes. These prevention principles align well with SCNM's Core Values: We achieve excellence; We do the right thing; We shape the future; We are resilient; and, We love."
