Pardes & Scholarships

In efforts to help offset the cost of tuition, families have the opportunity to partner with multiple STOs (Student Tuition Organization). Families are highly encouraged to apply to multiple STOs to maximize your tuition assistance. This will allow families to stack scholarship awards to maximize tuition assistance. In addition, there are several other ways to offset tuition costs.

In addition to applying for STOs, TADS will help families bridge the gap between the tuition cost and what a family can afford to pay.

Pardes provides financial assistance through TADS which determines the family’s financial need with the use of information provided confidentially by the family. The TADS application deadline is April 15th, 2024.

Arizona Private School Funding

The state of Arizona allows families to use tax credit opportunities to offset the cost of a private school education.  By doing so, families can choose the best educational setting for their child, including the opportunity to educate their child at a Jewish day school.  The program allows Arizona tax payers to contribute a portion of their Arizona tax liability to a School Tuition Organization (STO) and take dollar-for-dollar tax credit on their state income tax return.

The State of Arizona also offers the opportunity to receive an Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) to help pay private school tuition. An ESA account is administered by the Arizona Department of Education and funded by state tax dollars. Funding that would have otherwise been allocated to the qualified student’s school district or charter school can be redirected to a private school.

NOTICE: A school tuition organization cannot award, restrict or reserve scholarships solely on the basis of donor recommendation. A taxpayer may not claim a tax credit if the taxpayer agrees to swap donations with another taxpayer to benefit either taxpayer’s own dependent. Consult your tax advisor for specific tax advice.
