Apply for Tuition Assistance

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

The school’s Enrollment Office makes recommendations on a need basis only; no merit aid is awarded. Tuition assistance is reviewed annually. In accepting a student on tuition assistance, 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 tuition assistance and observing all deadlines. If you are interested in applying for tuition assistance, 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 tuition assistance, please call the school office at (520) 722-8478.

Halo Fund and Arizona Tax Credit

All St Michael’s families are encouraged to contribute to the Halo 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 tuition assistance for qualified students.
