Tuition Pre-payment Discount
A three percent (3%) discount is given for annual tuition paid in full on or before July 1st.  In the case of late enrollment by new or transferring students (does not apply to re-enrolling students), the discount is available if the prorated tuition is paid in full on or before the student’s first day of school.  It may be combined with multiple child discounts.
 
Financial Aid
Financial Aid is available through the Arizona Private School Tax Credit for tuition for grades K – 6.  The application window varies depending on the STO (School Tuition Organization).  For a complete list of STOs that we work with and available funds, please see our Scholarship Process and Policies page.  Faith Community Church members may qualify for a separate fund.  Our bookkeeper can answer questions as well:  Kathleen Purcell, bookkeeper@fcatucson.org.
