EVERY STUDENT SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RECEIVE THE EDUCATION THAT SUITS THEIR NEEDS.

 
 

School Choice Arizona exists to help make that happen. By working with Arizona’s tax credits, we are able to help scholarship thousands of students, who otherwise couldn’t, get the education that they need.

School Choice Arizona was originally formed in 2006 to primarily implement the newly passed Corporate Tuition Tax Credit Law. In the years since, we’ve continued to expand as we’ve partnered even more closely with our schools to help parents take advantage of the Individual (Original and Overflow) Tax Credit Scholarships, Payroll Withholdings, and more. Our goal is to help families afford Private Education, and that is the driving factor in everything that we do.
