Funds for All

At the International School of Arizona, we believe all children should have access to high quality private school education regardless of household income, and the State of Arizona agrees! Through the unique Arizona Private School Tax Credit legislation, all our students (K-8th Grade) are eligible to receive funds to offset tuition. This remarkable opportunity to redirect Arizona tax dollars to our scholarship program affords the International School of Arizona the ability to deliver academic excellence in a rewarding and progressive multilingual environment to our diverse community.

The International School of Arizona works closely with state-approved Student Tuition Organizations, to manage this exceptional tuition scholarship program.  Now, it’s time to participate! 

Why participate in the Private School Tax Credit?

Under Arizona state law, anyone (parents, family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and businesses) can redirect their Arizona state tax dollars to create valuable International School of Arizona Scholarships, which ANY STUDENT (K-8th Grade) may receive.

Arizona tax preparers encourage participation in the Private School Tax Credit, as donors receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit, and a federal tax deduction, if they itemize charitable donations.   This means, the donor may be eligible to offset more taxes than the amount they donate.  Call your tax preparer today to discuss the advantages of creating an International School of Arizona scholarship.

Helpful Hint:  Seek companies with “matching programs”, as these scholarships qualify as a charitable donation.

  1. ASK YOUR TAX PREPARER – Request that your tax preparer recommend the International School of Arizona to their OTHER CLIENTS.   Many clients don’t have a relationship with a private school, yet still would like to realize the tax benefits.   Let your tax preparer know that they International School of Arizona Scholarship Program has over 260 eligible students.
