How Can I Afford Private School?
**Almost two thirds (over 60%) of our existing students receive scholarships to help them cover the cost of their tuition.**
The State of Arizona allows individuals and corporations to make donations to School Tuition Organizations on behalf of individuals or schools. Individuals who donate receive dollar for dollar state tax credit on their Arizona State Income Tax Filing. There are many of these School Tuition Organizations where you can apply for scholarships for your children. (e.g. Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization, “ACSTO”, Tuition Organization for Private Schools, “TOPS”, School Choice Arizona, Inc., “SCA”, Arizona School Choice Trust, “ASCT”). There are many other organizations as well.
Qualifications for scholarships vary from organization to organization.
Families who qualify through Arizona School Choice Trust, “ASCT” are awarded between 50% and 90% of the annual tuition ($3,000 max scholarship based on tuition).
For Example (1st – 3rd; $6500 annual): If you qualify for an ASCT scholarship, your tuition could be: $6500 – $3,000 = $350.00 over 10 months.
