Financial Aid


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!

**80% of our existing students receive scholarships to help them cover the cost of their tuition. So far our students received an average of $6,950 in scholarships each for the 2017/2018 school year.

The State of Arizona allows individuals and corporations to make donations to School Tuition Organizations 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 $6,050

  • Corporate scholarships of $1,250

  • $7,250 received towards tuition

  • $4,987 still owed, which is a payment of only $454 per month over 11 months!

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

Receive awards of as much as your student's full tuition per STO! Details and qualifications vary per organization.
