Small private school first day

How to Pay for Private School Workshop

On May 7, 2018 Prism Education Center will host a workshop for families who would like to learn more about programs available to them to pay for private school. Among other things in the discussion, we will discuss how the new tax reform law could help families who have not been eligible for income-based tuition discounts. You may remember that we wrote about this new law here. Since that time, Arkansas legislators have adopted new policies that will allow Arkansas families to take full advantage of this program.


There are a few things that will help you reap more from this event. Please bring the following information with you when you come (this does not need to be shared with anyone, but will help you determine what programs benefit you:

  • Total income from 2017
  • Total taxable income from 2017
  • Students in the 6th or 7th grade should bring any text scores you have
  • Any family who receives therapeutic services or has an IEP is encouraged to bring that documentation with them as there may be scholarships available to you for these programs.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required, but doing so will greatly help us in preparing for the event. Please register online here.
