We provide flexible payment plan options at no additional cost. Options include 10 months (August – May) or 12 months (June – May). After any tuition tax credit, SCRIP or PCS Tuition Assistance is deducted, the balance is billed monthly. For complete details on these avenues to help you with tuition costs, contact the school office.
Arizona Christian School Tuition Tax Credit
For the 2019 tax year, a married couple can donate up to $1138 for the original tax credit year to a designated student as well as an additional $1131 for the Overflow/Plus donation. Donors will receive a dollar-for-dollar credit on their Arizona state income tax return. This law also applies to a single taxpayer who may donate up to $569 for the original tax credit and uo to $566 for the Overflow/Plus tax credit. The process is simple and there is no limit to the number of donors or how much you may receive. The money is distributed to us and is credited toward your tuition. Our school has a very high participation rate, and many of our families receive 50%-100% of their tuition by utilizing this benefit. We almost exclusively use Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization as our school tuition organization (STO). There are many others that are available to you also. For more information visit: www.acsto.com. Other tuition organizations are: AZ. Private Education Fund: www.apesf.org, AZ School Choice Trust: www.asct.org, www.scholarshipsaz.org, www.ibescholarships.org.
PCS Tuition Scholarship
Each year we are pleased to be able to award tuition funds to qualifying families. This need-based assistance requires you to complete a short application and provide your latest federal tax information. In addition to income, we take into consideration the number of children enrolled at Phoenix Christian School PreK-8, and others who may be in Christian secondary schools. The Scholarship Committee reviews each applicant on the same basis using the same criteria, and all information is strictly confidential. You will be notified of their decision within five (5) business days, holidays being the exception. Applications are processed on a first come, first served basis as long as funds are available.
School Credit Reimbursement Incentive Program—What better way to earn tuition credit than getting credit for shopping at your normal places of business. Here’s how it works. We provide you with a list of participating merchants. You choose the ones you want to shop or dine at, and we provide you with a gift card in the amount of your purchase. It is a dollar-for-dollar exchange. For example if you purchased $100 of Home Depot you can spend $100, and they in turn give the school a percentage of the sale that goes directly to your tuition. Another advantage is that you can have anyone order SCRIP, from the school, just send them our list of merchants and you’ll receive a percentage of those totals too.
