Tuition Assistance

There are various opportunities for tuition assistance, most notably through the Student Tuition Organization, Catholic Education Arizona (CEA). Those families who, because of limited income or extraordinary financial obligations, cannot pay the full tuition are required to complete the annual CEA forms for students in Kindergarten-8th grade.

St. John Vianney School encourages every family to contribute to the Catholic Education Arizona (CEA), a tuition assistance program. The Arizona Tuition Tax Credit Act allows every family that owes Arizona state taxes up to $2,435 against state income tax, and $1,219 for individuals. This payment is made to a qualified School Tuition Organization that provides scholarships or grants to students in qualified private schools. As a Catholic school, St. John Vianney participates in the program through Catholic Education Arizona (CEA).

Please take advantage of the exceptional opportunity to help St. John Vianney Catholic School. If you need additional CEA forms, they are in the school office and on-line at There are several simple ways to make your contribution:
