We offer a few opportunities to help kids come to our school for Autism. Read below about some ways to pay for your child with Autism’s education.
ANNUAL TUITION – 2017-2018
Kindergarten full day, 1st-8th grades: $27,000.00
High School: $28,500.00
TUITION DOES NOT INCLUDE: Yearbook, enrollment / re-enrollment fees, field trip costs, before / after school care, transportation, club and activity fees and other school events.
SCHOLARSHIPS AND PAYING FOR TUITION
There are a variety of scholarship opportunities in Arizona and because of this, most of our students are able to attend Autism Academy with little or no out of pocket cost.
We are committed to helping parents with the process of finding and applying for funding. If you have questions or need assistance applying for scholarships, please contact our funding specialist, Kym Wilbur firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-525-6197.
Empowerment Scholarship Accounts
ESA is administered by Arizona’s Department of Education which is funded by state tax dollars to provide educational options for qualified Arizona students. The amount of the ESA depends primarily on the child’s disability, as listed in the child’s Arizona public school IEP or MET report.
Current families can file their expense reports by clicking here: ESA Expense Report Portal
Student Tuition Organizations
STOs receive tax credit donations from individuals and corporations for the purpose of granting scholarships to eligible students for private school tuition costs. STOs award scholarships under four different programs: The Original, The Switcher / Overflow Tax Credit, The Disabled / Displaced, and The Low Income Corporate. A student may receive a scholarship from more than one STO, however some have limitations and exclusions.
Autism Academy is an approved private day school with the Arizona Department of Education for Kindergarten through High School. We work with many school districts and charter schools to accommodate students whose needs require an alternative placement.
Families who pay tuition costs out of pocket have three payment options:
*annual tuition divided into 10 monthly installments
*annual tuition paid in full prior to the first day of enrollment – 10% discount is given
*semester tuition paid in full prior to the first day of semester – 5% discount is given
