Mesa Christian Academy works with multiple local Arizona Scholarship Tuition Organizations (STOs), and we encourage our students to apply with all of them, if they meet the requirements of the individual programs. Some organizations only work with low income families or students with disabilities. Other programs work with all students K-12, regardless of income or situation. Do your own research as well. There are many scholarship possibilities within the state. (See below for ESA Accounts - a different type of financial assistance program)
The state of Arizona allows residents of the state to donate to these scholarship organizations, recommend which school and/or student should receive these funds, and then the donor receives a dollar-for-dollar tax credit against their state tax liability. There are rules and limitations to this tax credit program which are outlined on all of the scholarship organization websites, but this is a win-win situation for both donors and scholarship recipients.
Please apply online with each of the scholarship organizations and then encourage your family, friends, co-workers, and church congregation to give in the name of Mesa Christian Academy and/or your student.

"ESA is an account administered by ADE (AZ Dept of Education) that is funded by state tax dollars to provide educational options for qualified Arizona students. By opting out of the public school system, parents can seek a range of alternative educational services, such as private school or home-based education, to tailor an individualized educational plan that is best for their child." (from the ADE website)
ESA funding is only available to students in certain circumstances. Please see the link below for more information and to see if you may qualify.
