Arizona residents are fortunate to be able to choose the private school of their choice without the accompanying tuition costs that most think naturally would be needed.
Let us help you understand how the Arizona Private School Tax Credit Program works!
Financial aid is available through the Casas Christian School in-house scholarship process as well as from outside tax credit organizations called School Tuition Organizations (STOs). If you have any questions concerning financial aid please contact Angelica Baker, our Financial Aid Coordinator, at (520) 878-1193.
There are two parts to applying for the school’s in-house scholarship funds:
Make an appointment for a scholarship meeting with Angelica Baker- firstname.lastname@example.org or 520-878-1174. During this meeting you will be applying to various other scholarship organizations (including those listed below).
Complete the school’s financial aid application. We are utilizing an outside organization, FAST, to process these applications. FAST does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential. The application can be accessed by clicking here.
We would also love for you to join one of our Tax Credit Workshops hosted by IBE (Institute for Better Education). These informational nights will give you the tools needed to potentially cover most or all of your tuition payments!
If you are not applying for in-house scholarship funds, but wish to seek some additional financial assistance, we recommend that you apply to the following STOs. If you are applying for in-house funds, please wait until you have your scholarship meeting – we will be completing these applications together at that time.
