Scholarships and Affordability

Education is your best investment.

 “God gets the glory for bringing  us to Payson Christian School. I always thought we couldn’t afford the school, but I called and spoke with the Admissions department, and they were so helpful in explaining how the scholarship process works as long as we took the time to get the applications done. It was so easy to get them all done in just an hour. I went to the Christian school scholarship page and filled out each scholarship line by line, and before I knew it I was done in about an hour. Then, I woke up one morning and I had an email and my balance for the year had dropped significantly! Tears came to my eyes and I just knew this is right where we needed to be. The work for scholarships totally paid off!”
– The Bartlett family

Get financed.

As a Private, Christian school in Arizona, PCS receives no funding from governmental sources. However, students can receive scholarships from Student Tuition Organizations (STO), as well as Corporate Scholarships Organizations. The primary STO that Payson Christian uses is Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization (ACSTO).

The primary Corporate Scholarship organization that Payson Christian School uses is School Choice Arizona, but students are encouraged to research need based qualifications for all corporate scholarship organizations.


1. Student must have a new application on file every year at the STO. Go to and fill out an application for your student. There are no income restrictions to receive scholarships.

2. Individual tax payers can then donate up to their state tax liability, or the maximum STO donation limit, whichever is less (this amount changes every year, and you can find that amount on the ACSTO website).

                a. Donations are a dollar for dollar state tax credit, reducing the total state tax liability for that tax year. Donations must be made before taxes are filed, up to April 15th to claim the credit for that previous tax year.

               b. Donations can be made to the private Christian school of the donor’s choice. Individual student recommendations can also be made, but are not guaranteed.

3. Student tuition can be fully funded through the use of scholarships.

Corporate Tax Credit

1.  Scholarship recommendations are reviewed and disbursed to the school periodically.

2.  Student must have a new application on file each year at each corporate scholarship organization (see below for a list of corporate scholarship organizations), and meet scholarship guidelines to receive scholarship from that foundation. If no application is on file, students cannot receive this scholarship.

3.  C and S Corporations can donate their state tax liability to any corporate scholarship organization, and name the private school of their choice to receive their donation. Donations are a dollar for dollar state tax credit, reducing the total state tax liability for that corporation for that tax year.

4.  Scholarships are reviewed and disbursed to the school.

 Here’s a list of Corporate Scholarship Organizations. Check the scholarship guidelines, and apply to all of them!

These scholarships are for disabled students (receiving an IEP or 504 plan), students who have ever been in the foster care system, or low income students. Don’t count yourself out for low income scholarships! For the 17-18 application, “low income” is about $80,000 for a family of four! Apply now, deadlines approach quickly.
