Phoenix Hebrew Academy is dedicated to its mission of educating the next generation of leaders. We understand that financing a private Jewish Education can be challenging. In Arizona, there are many great programs to ensure that families can receive monies to help fund education. No child will be turned away due to a lack of funds.
What is the Arizona Private School Tax Credit Program?
Arizona is leading the nation in school choice, and the private school tuition tax credit program is one key way that our state is making it possible for thousands of students to attend the schools that their parents believe best meet the needs of their children. This program allows Arizona taxpayers to contribute a portion of their Arizona state tax liability to a School Tuition Organization (STO) and take a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on their Arizona state income tax return while recommending those dollars go to a specific student or school. In turn, Arizona private school parents can apply for tuition scholarships from numerous STOs.

Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) Program
The Arizona Department of Education has officially announced that the ESA Program is in effect. The ESA Program allows parents of qualified students to utilize public monies to purchase educational services from private schools, education providers, and/or vendors. Eligible students receive 90% of the State aid that would have gone to the student’s school district or charter school had the student remained enrolled in the public school system.
For the latest information, please visit the AZED website.
For those not eligible for STOs or children with IEPs and METs, ESA is a great option.
Which do you use?
