Our Mission

Helping children afford Private Christian School by providing them scholarships 
paid from Arizona Private School Tax Credits.


Cochise Christian School Tuition Organization (CCSTO) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization incorporated in 2002. 

CCSTO is authorized by the State of Arizona to offer the four tax credit programs currently available:  

      Individual, Overflow/Switcher, Corporate Low Income and Corporate Disabled/Displaced. 

Generous donors give to CCSTO and receive a dollar-to-dollar tax credit.  The donations are used for tuition scholarships for K-12 students attending Christian schools in Arizona. 

Don't miss the opportunity to take advantage of the private school tax credit, possibly receive a federal deduction, and donate to a child's education - all at the same time!

If you are a Corporation, Sub Corp or LLC filing as a Corporation, you may be eligible to take a Corporate Private Tax Credit.  Please review the information on the Corporate Tax Credit tab.


Arizona Revised Statute - A.R.S. §43-1603(C):
  • A school tuition organization cannot award, restrict or reserve scholarships solely on the basis of a donor's recommendation.
  • A taxpayer may not claim a tax credit if the taxpayer agrees to swap donations with another taxpayer to benefit either taxpayer’s own dependents.
