Policies for Families Receiving ESAs – Empowerment Scholarships

The Arizona Department of Education administers Arizona’s ESA (Empowerment Scholarship Account) program. This program allows parents of qualified students to utilize public monies to purchase education services from private schools.

  • Families who are interested in applying for ESA funding can find further information at:
    1. The remaining amount of the tuition you owe will be determined after July 1, once the ESA amount has been funded
    2. You will be responsible for the remaining tuition after you have been funded with your ESA. Amounts may vary
    3. The remaining tuition due outside of the ESA dollars can be broken into monthly or biannual installments to Christos

Policies for Families Receiving STOs – Student Tuition Organizations

Families who apply to School Tuition Organizations (STOs, organizations that receive income tax credit contributions which fund scholarships for students to attend qualified private schools located in Arizona) will be funded on a quarterly basis.

Tuition Reduction

How can I qualify for reduced tuition on top of using the ESA program or a STO?

Christos is happy to offer low-income families the opportunity for tuition reduction by submitting an income tax return for the 2021 filing year with your enrollment registration materials. Your income will be reviewed using the National School Lunch Program Federal Income Guidelines.

If you qualify for Free or Reduced meals, you will receive the corresponding tuition reduction.

Families who qualify for reduced meals the tuition will be $8200/yr. Families who qualify for free meals the tuition will be $7000/yr. We will use the 2023-2024 income guidelines as our standard for determining your eligibility. However, we will use your 2021 income to determine eligibility.

A discount is offered to families who are enrolling more than one child into a Christos school as follows:

  • The first student will be charged full tuition
  • The second child in the same family will receive a 10% discount on tuition
  • All additional children (3+) in the same family will receive a 20% discounted individual tuition

Financial Policies

    • Great Hearts Christos offers three payments for full tuition options:
      1. Pay in Full- Due on August 1
      2. Two Payments- Due on August 1 and December 1
      3. Monthly- Due on the 1st  of the month, August through May
    • A late fee of $25.00 will be assessed if tuition payments are received after the 5thof the month
    • All electronic payment declines will be charged a fee of $50 per occurrence
    • Accounts that are delinquent 60 days will result in a withdrawal of the student until the account is brought current or arrangements and a written payment plan has been approved through the administration. If your account is suspended, a $50.00 reinstatement fee will be assessed
    • When a student is voluntarily withdrawn from Great Hearts Christos for any reason, at any time, (June-July) the parent must notify Administration in writing at least one (1) week prior to the withdrawal date. A formal Withdrawal Form must be completed, signed, and submitted.  An email message to Administration from the parent’s email address on file is an acceptable written form of notification to the school
    • After official notification has been received, tuition will be calculated through the week plus one full month. After this consideration, a tuition credit balance paid by the parent may only be refunded if there are no other outstanding balances owed for any tuition, other school fees, or any debt owed on any account
    • Parents have a contractual obligation to satisfy any outstanding accounts. In the event of default due to nonpayment, the account will be liable for, but not limited to, all attorney fees, court costs, and interest at the rate of 22% per annum
    • Accounts delinquent 60 days may be referred to outside collection agencies, will be reported to national credit bureaus, and a surcharge of 40% will be added to the outstanding balances to cover the collection cost. Should it become necessary for Great Hearts Christos to retain an attorney or collection agency to secure payment of any amount due, the debtor is responsible for paying all attorney’s fees, court costs, and collection agency charges. Late fees may continue to accrue monthly or be assessed as a late fee when accounts are transferred between agencies until the balance is paid in full.
