Catholic Education Arizona (CEA) is a separate 501c3 non-for-profit “School Tuition Organization”. It operates on its own, separately from the Diocese of Phoenix. CEA supports 38 Catholic schools throughout the Diocese of Phoenix and including Boys Hope Girls Hope of Phoenix.
All students enrolling in one of the 38 diocesan schools (K-12) each year, is welcome to complete a scholarship application form. The primary criteria for awarding scholarships is financial need.
Catholic Education Arizona strives to assist as many financially qualified students as possible every year by increasing tax credit contributions for our schools. As enrollment increases, and more and more families wish to send their children to a Catholic school for the quality of education and learning environment, the needs continue to grow.
