About Us

School Choice Arizona was formed in 2006 primarily to implement the newly passed Corporate Tuition Tax Credit Law, but also to facilitate taking advantage of the Private School Tuition Tax Credit in special circumstances. Through these two avenues, we exist to give parents educational choice. Our goal at School Choice Arizona is to help families afford private education by providing scholarships to children attending qualified private schools in the state of Arizona.
