The State of Arizona is unique in that it offers scholarships to Arizona Christian Schools. There are two different options when it come to scholarships for private schools. You can choose to apply for ESA or STOs. The differences between he two are outlined below.
Empowerment Scholarship (ESA)
ESA is an exclusive scholarship and cannot be combined with any other scholarship. For the 23-24 year, you will be required to choose ESA or STOs for the entirety of the year. You will not be permitted to switch between the two.
ESA typically awards between 75%-100% of TBA's tuition depending on a student's grade level.
ACSTO has created a very helpful guide for you as parents to know what ESA is, how it compares to STOs, and how you can take advantage of it as an Arizona resident. This guide is linked below.
School Tuition Organizations (STOs)
Arizona taxpayers have the opportunity to designate their state tax dollars to go towards Christian schools. This is a wonderful opportunity to allow your tax dollars to further the next generation through Christian education. Most of our current students have received funds through the following scholarship organizations.
