Making your school of choice more affordable

Through individuals and corporations who are given the opportunity to redirect their state tax liabilities towards education, STO4KIDZ in-turn utilizes these tax contributions to provide scholarships for qualifying students attending qualified private schools in Arizona. This enables families to send their children to their school of choice which best meet the needs of each individual child.

Families with multiple children MUST apply for each child. However, one household income information is sufficient for the entire family each school year. Your student must be enrolled, or enrollment is in process at a K-12 private school in Arizona to be considered for scholarship awards; we will contact the school for enrollment and tuition balance verification. The application is good for each school academic year and it expires at the end of each school year. 

STO4KIDZ MUST verify your student’s tuition balance with your private school. You MUST contact your student’s school and give permission to release tuition balance information to STO4KIDZ. (TUITION BALANCE AFTER ANY DISCOUNT OR SCHOOL-SCHOLARSHIP HAS BEEN APPLIED TO YOUR STUDENT’S ACCOUNT).
