Private, Christian Education is Affordable

What an amazing time for Christian Education in the State of Arizona! Families now have the opportunity to utilize Tax Credit Scholarships or Universal ESA. At Christ Greenfield we never want tuition to be a barrier! Utilizing tax credit scholarships or Universal ESA makes Christian Education possible!  

Scholarship Workshops and Coaching

At Christ Greenfield School, we believe every child should benefit from a Christ-centered education and we work to assist families in their efforts. Tuition at Christ Greenfield School is amazingly affordable as a result of scholarships.

More than 50% of Christ Greenfield School families are paying less than $500 out-of-pocket for tuition each year for their students. We offer scholarship workshops and individual coaching sessions to help families discover which scholarships are available and how to obtain them. 

The Arizona Private School Tax Credit offers a unique opportunity for Arizona taxpayers to make contributions to Certified School Tuition Organizations (STOs), such as the Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization (ACSTO), and recommend students at Christ Greenfield School. Taxpayers receive a dollar-for-dollar Arizona State Tax Credit and students receive tuition scholarships.

Register for a workshop and learn how Arizona's tax credits can create scholarships for Christ Greenfield School students.

Coaching Sessions help parents learn:

  • How donating significantly increases the number of scholarships available for all students.
  • What types of scholarships are available and who qualifies.
  • When to start soliciting for scholarships while in pre-school.
  • Where the best places are to apply for scholarships.
  • Who can donate to your child; avoid donor swapping and other errors that can hinder scholarship awards.
  • What a blessing the Tax Credit program is and how to lovingly share it with friends, neighbors, and co-workers.
  • How and when to create an annual tax credit letter and thank you notes for donors.
  • How to grow your tax credit network each year.


Empowerment Scholarship Account

The Arizona Department of Education offers families the opportunity of school choice with the Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA). ESA is a K-12 program that is funded by state tax dollars to provide education options for Arizona students. The ESA program provides a spending account to fund education expenses, such as private school tuition, tutoring services, educational therapies, online learning, textbooks, and more. Families can expect to receive between $4,000- $7,000 for the academic year. A student who is receiving ESA funds is unable to accept Tax Credit Scholarships for the same fiscal year.  

Arizona Tax Credit Opportunities

The Private School Tax Credit Program is your best option to reduce tuition costs. Parents can become familiar with and use the Arizona Tax Credit opportunity each year. This program allows others to help with tuition costs for your child with a direct tax credit to the donor.

The Arizona Private School Tax Credit allows AZ taxpayers to create scholarships for students at Christ Greenfield Lutheran School by making a donation to the Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization (ACSTO) and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit. This credit directly reduces the taxpayer’s annual Arizona income tax liability. The AZ Private School Tax Credit is a valuable tool for expanding Christian education AND tax planning. Families utilizing the Tax Credits have the opportunity to get tuition FULLY covered!
