The State of Arizona is unique in that it offers scholarships to Arizona Christian Schools. 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.
