Financial Aid

Apply for Finacial Aid

St. Michael’s seeks students of intellectual promise from diverse backgrounds. We maintain a financial aid program to enable students who need financial aid to be able to attend St. Michael’s. Our financial aid monies are funded by the Arizona Tax Credit Program with 100% of the tax credit funds designated for St. Michael’s going to the financial aid program. Over 30% of our students received tuition assistance.

The school’s Financial Aid Committee makes recommendations on a need basis only; no merit aid is awarded. Financial aid is reviewed annually. In accepting a student on financial aid, St. Michael’s makes a commitment to attempt to support the attendance of the student through graduation, pending satisfactory performance and continued demonstrated need. The school maintains a need-blind admissions policy.

Families are responsible for inquiring about financial aid and observing all deadlines. If you are interested in applying for financial aid, visit the FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition) to complete the necessary on-line application. All financial information will be sent to and processed by FAST. Their site has step-by-step, downloadable instructions and a 24 hour help line to assist you. If you have any further questions regarding financial aid, please call the school office at (520) 722-8478.

Annual Fund and Arizona Tax Credit

All St Michael’s families are expected to contribute to the Annual Fund in any way they can. Families who pay Arizona state taxes are asked to allocate to the AESF tax credit program. Our entire scholarship program is funded through Arizona tax credit allocations. All tax credit allocations directed to St. Michael’s School are used for financial aid for qualified students.
