Scholarships

Financial Aid is available through scholarships, STO’s and fundraisers.  A School Tuition Organization (STO) is tax exempt and allocates at least 90% of its annual revenue to tuition awards, and makes its tuition awards available to all students who qualified and apply.  

GFA is partnered with the STO’s listed below.

STO Scholarship Information:

STO’s require an application for your student each year.  New applications for the upcoming school year are available in the spring.  Financial information is required from all families participating in the Private School Tuition Tax Program.  The state of Arizona requires specific financial guidelines for school tuition organizations.  Donors may recommend your student with their donation, but by state law recommendations are not guaranteed.  Each STO takes other factors into consideration when processing applications.
