Education and Learning for a Lifetime
Friends Education based in values of equality, service, peace, and community. Nurturing the innate goodness, desire to learn, and special gifts in all.
Phoenix Friends School tuition is set at $19,000/year. Financial assistance is available based on family income. We strive to meet 100% of demonstrated need for qualifying families.
Phoenix Friends School tuition is all inclusive and covers field trips, school uniform, service learning projects, and other special programs.
Phoenix Friends School observes an “evergreen” tuition policy, meaning that the tuition charged at the time of enrollment remains unchanged through a student’s graduation from the 8th grade.
Choices of after school programs are billed separately.
Empowerment Scholarship Account Program
With the passing of HB-2853 in June 2022, Arizona's Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) program has been expanded to all Arizona school children. Families can receive $6,000-$7,000 per year per child for private school tuition, online education, education therapies, or private tutoring.
For more information, please see https://www.azed.gov/esa and https://www.azed.gov/esa/frequently-asked-questions.
Arizona Tuition Tax Credit Program
The state of Arizona allows private school students to apply for tax-credit scholarships from School Tuition Organizations (STOs). Funds are awarded through STOs and based on need. Students can apply for funding from multiple STOs each year. Students receiving ESA funding are not eligible for Tuition Tax Credit funding. If you wonder which program is right for you, we would be glad to talk with you about it.
For more information on how to contribute to the program and receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit, please see our Donate page.
