How Can I Afford Private School?

Great news! Multiple forms of financial aid and scholarships are available to Carefree Christian Academy students! By combining CCA tuition discounts with STO scholarships, you CAN afford to send your student to private school.

Many of our existing students receive scholarships to help them cover the cost of their tuition. Our students received an average of $6,340 each in scholarships.

The State of Arizona allows individuals and corporations to make donations to School Tuition Organizations (STO) on behalf of individuals or schools. Individuals who donate receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit on their Arizona State taxes. Out-of-state donors may claim a Federal tax deduction.

Example CCA student scenario:

  • STO Private Scholarships of $6,380
  • Corporate Scholarships of $1,250
  • $7,630 received towards tuition
  • $5,337 still owed, which is a payment of only $485 per month over 11 months!

Example Only: each family situation is different, but this is a realistic estimate based on actual student scenarios at CCA.
