Affording Pusch Ridge Christian Academy

While a private school education is often desired by Christian parents, many do not believe that it is financially attainable. However, Arizona is different. The Arizona Private School Tuition Tax Credit, passed into law in 1997, can make private school possible. Some scholarships have requirements that include financial need, but the Individual Tax Credit is an avenue for any family seeking tuition assistance. Learn more about these scholarships as well as protecting these tax credits. We encourage families to attend at least one You Can Afford a Christian Education Workshop, which are held July through March and open to current and prospective families.  

Other scholarships that help our families include: corporate low-income scholarships, disabled/displaced scholarships, and Empowerment Scholarship Accounts. 
In addition, families may apply for financial aid by completing the following steps:

  • Apply online at Financial Aid and School Tuition (FAST) by clicking on the FAST button. The cost is $48 per family and can be submitted starting February 1. For maximum consideration, apply by July 10.  Once the application has been processed by FAST, PRCA will notify the family of the financial aid result. Please note that FAST has no money to allocate; they are simply a qualifying organization. Schools use their result as a guide when awarding financial aid. For questions regarding the application, call FAST at 877-326-3278.
  • Complete an ACSTO application.  Ask family and friends to make their tax credit donations and to recommend your child.
  • Apply to additional School Tuition Organizations (STOs) which may include ASCTO, IBE, APESF, School Choice Arizona and Arizona Leadership Foundation. Find a complete list of STOs here.
Please contact me to set up a meeting to address any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to helping your family afford a Christian education!
