Financial Aid


At Family Life Academy we work hard to keep our tuition affordable. However, in these tough economic times we understand that choosing to put your child in a private school can come down to a financial decision. There are many different School Tuition Organizations (STO’s) that award scholarships to children in private schools. Below is a list of four of these STO’s that students at Family Life Academy have received scholarships from. Thank you for considering Family Life Academy and please do not hesitate to contact Christopher Taylor or Jessica de la Garza at 296-8989 with any questions.

Christian Scholarship Fund of Arizona (CSF): www.csf-az.org/scholarship.html
The members of the congregation of Christ Community Church have made tax credit donations for scholarships to be awarded to students attending Family Life Academy through this STO for many years. We encourage families attending FLA to apply for these scholarships at CSF. You are required to fill out an online Confidential Financial Services (CFS) form at www.cfslogin.com Family Life Academy’s school number is 68989, and there is a $30 processing fee. You will also need to fill out a CSF Student/School Joint Scholarship Application form for each child enrolled and one CSF Income Worksheet form per family (they are both available on our website), please return both of these forms with a copy of your 2014 IRS 1040 tax return to the school office.
