Arizona Lutheran Academy is a private, Christian school with a mission to serve students with excellence in education. We are excited to provide a high school experience that surrounds students with a culture that’s like a FAMILY, spiritual support for each student’s FAITH, and all the preparation students need for a bright FUTURE.

My job is to help families understand ALA, but one of the biggest parts of that job is to help families understand all the options that exist for affording a private education for their children. Many families are surprised to learn about the options and come to realize a private, Christian education can be a reality! It is rewarding to walk families through the tuition assistance process and see how God provides in ways that some never knew existed.

Please make plans to join me at a Tuition Assistance Workshop.

Once you’ve had the chance to learn more, we can make further plans to meet for follow up or specific assistance navigating the process.


Michelle Meyer
Director of Admissions


One of the top priorities of our admissions department is to help families understand the many options they have for tuition assistance.

The best way to do this is to attend one of our tuition assistance workshops. Our team will walk you through available assistance options, how to apply, and what to expect during the process. The new Universal ESA will be explained during this workshop.

The workshops are no-obligation and no-cost. Your family does not even need to apply to ALA to attend.

“My son enjoyed his time in Arizona with his friends, teachers, and all the cultural and sporting events at ALA so much that he decided to finish his schooling at ALA in Arizona. The school and his teachers made it possible that he could take all the AP courses which he needed for the recognition of his high school diploma as a German Abitur. On the day of his graduation his biggest dream came true.”
