The Arkansas LEARNS Act, passed by the Arkansas legislature in 2021 provides qualifying students an Educational Freedom Account (EFA) which contains funds that can be used to pay for a portion of private school tuition. The board of directors of SCA have committed to keeping our tuition rates and fees at or below the EFA funding amount so that qualifying students may attend without any out-of-pocket costs. EFAs provide up to $6,856 during the 2024-25 school year, and may be used to pay for private school tuition, fees, uniforms, and some other required expenses. Applications for 2024-25 may be taken now.
