St. Jerome Catholic School receives funding from tax credit organizations. St. Jerome Catholic School wants to make every effort to help all families receive scholarships to help defray the cost of a Catholic education. There are two ways to help pay for tuition at St. Jerome Catholic School:
Using a combination of scholarship funds and monies redirected by family and friends directly to your child can greatly reduce your tuition payment!! Scholarship applications for the 2018-2019 school year will begin opening in late January.
Here is what we ask you to do: FILE YOUR TAXES EARLY! This is a key step to completing the scholarship application. St. Jerome Catholic School is asking all families to apply for 6 tax credit scholarships as part of the re-enrollment process. This helps us help you receive the most amount of monies possible. We are also open to helping you out in the process.
We have set aside the following schedule to work with you in completing scholarship applications as well as scanning and uploading your tax documents. Our goal is that when you come to fill out applications with us, that you will leave knowing you have completed 6 scholarship applications to help fund tuition for the 2018-2019 school year. Please note that families are welcome to apply to more than 6 organizations and we are very happy to help you.
Scholarship Application Assistance Dates/Times:
Listed below are additional STO’s that award assistance based on various criteria that may be beneficial for your family. Feel free to research and apply for those organizations that may meet your specific family need, and remember to educate those you know on the benefits of taking the Arizona State Tax Credit.
Some of the STOs have separate applications for “individual” awards (money donated by individuals), “corporate” awards (money donated by corporations) and “corporate plus / switcher” awards. If your child is entering Kindergarten in August or transferring from a public school, your family may qualify for the “corporate plus/switcher” awards. Please make sure and meet all deadlines for the specific STO you will be applying to.
Please take the time to have your tax return prepared early so that you can apply by the STO deadlines. There are limited funds available for the STOs, and those who apply early have the best chance of receiving assistance. Please visit www.azdor.gov/TaxCredits.aspx for more information
