Question #1 (For Parents):How did CEA helped make Catholic education attainable and affordable for your family?
CEA provided tuition support for our family when we needed it most. The Disabled/Displaced Scholarship that we received lessened the financial stress that we have from medical and therapy expenses. It made a private, Catholic education attainable to us. We will be forever grateful to the Arizona businesses that support that important tax credit.

Question #2 (For Children/Student): What does a Catholic education mean to you and your family?
Learning, friendship, fun and Faith

Question #3 (For Children/Student): Why was this opportunity important to you?
I was a part of the first 4 year class at JP2. Go Lions! I watched them literally build the school. I wanted to be a part of the history. I took an active part in building something brand new- traditions, clubs, athletics, and culture.

Question #4 (For Family/Parents): How would you thank those that have helped make your education possible through their state tax dollars and encourage them to continue to support Catholic Education Arizona?
We will thank them in words but also in deeds. What is done with the opportunity they helped provide with their disabled/displaced tax credit contribution is still in motion! We will never forget it. We will make them proud. We will pay it forward.

Xander is a recent graduate of St. John Paul II (Class of 2022!) and is heading of to College this Fall!
