Questions from Applicants:

 As a possible recipient what do I need to receive a tuition scholarship?

  Complete an Annual Application Form for each student, then you can seek potential donors willing to take advantage of the Tax credit. 
  The Donor can designate the school and recommend your student.

When is my child eligible to receive a scholarship?

What factors go into the consideration of the granting of an award?

Completion of an Annual Application, family income, is school partnered with CCSTO (See School Partner tab), student/family
      narrative and special circumstances, and recommendations. We also work closely with our School Partners to determine needs.

What if I leave the school during the school year?

If your student transfers to another private Christian school in Arizona your eligibility transfers with you. If your student leaves
      private school all together we work with the school to redirect any remaining funds to another deserving student.

May my child receive funds from more than one student tax organization?

Yes. There are several STO’s in Arizona and you may apply to as many of them as you choose. It is in your best interest to apply. 

May we make an arrangement with another parent or group to recommend each other's child?

  No, you may not. This is against the law.   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.
