While private school may seem like an extravagance, it can actually be far more affordable than you might think. Families desiring Christian education should not be deterred by the price.
Tax Credit Scholarships
At Grace Christian Academy, we are committed to helping parents become educated with Arizona’s tax credit scholarship program. In the past three years, GCA’s students have received well over $1,000,000 through tax credit donations. Partnering with multiple scholarship organizations allows our families that qualify to have the best opportunities for funding.
The state of Arizona allows private school students to apply for tax-credit scholarships from School Tuition Organizations (STOs). Grace Christian strongly encourages all new and current students to apply for scholarships from multiple STOs each year. Tax credit scholarships are awarded only to students who have completed our enrollment process.
There are three types of Tax Credit Scholarships:
Individual Tax Credits
Any student enrolled at Grace Christian is eligible to apply.
Any student falling under one of the following four categories may apply for Overflow/PLUS Scholarships:
- The student switched from public to a private school after attending the public school for at least 90 days.
- The student is a dependent of a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, stationed in Arizona.
- The student is in Kindergarten.
- The student has received Corporate or Overflow/PLUS Scholarships in the past and has attended private school ever since.
These awards have the same eligibility guidelines as the Overflow/PLUS awards, plus additional family income guidelines.
The Administrator’s Scholarship
In celebration of being 40 years strong in 2015, Grace Christian Academy launched a new merit-based scholarship program called the Administrator’s Scholarship.
To be eligible, you must be a new student entering 1st-8th grade. Applicants for the scholarship are considered based on their demonstrated character and academic achievements. Each recipient will receive up to $3,000 in tuition credit. A limited number of scholarships are available. Applications are due by June 30th and scholarships will be awarded by July 15. Turn the completed scholarship application into the school office. Student must be enrolled to be considered. Click here for the 2019-2020 Administrator’s Scholarship Application.
It is our desire to make it as simple as possible for our parent community to pay for their children’s education at Grace Christian Academy.
