Deadline for 2017 donations is April 15, 2018.

You decide how your tax dollars are spent

All of the tax dollars that you direct to the Orme Primavera Schools Foundation go directly into a scholarship fund that is distributed to approximately 70 qualified students at Primavera School and the Orme School each year. Your dollar-for-dollar tax credit donation costs you nothing, and supports a quality independent school education for students and families who appreciate the opportunity to attend these two schools because of the scholarship assistance they receive from you.

The Orme School (College Preparatory)

Discover one of Arizona’s finest college preparatory boarding schools. Small classes, rustic setting, intimate community, rigorous academics, full college acceptance, southwest studies, sustainability, competitive sports, horsemanship, outdoor leadership, fine arts, and much more await the students on the Orme campus!

Share the Good News!

Please share the good news about Orme Primavera Schools Foundation with your friends and family in Arizona and receive your dollar-for-dollar state income tax credit and federal income tax deduction for your donation to our foundation. Married couples may contribute up to $1,092.00 and single taxpayers may donate up to $546.00. Senate Bill 1047 allows donations to an STO in excess of the $546/$1092 for the original tax credit made by individuals for a single tax year. This additional donation is called the “Switcher/PLUS credit” and allows an additional $543 for single taxpayers and $1085 for married taxpayers filing jointly. The “Switcher/PLUS” credit will assist students who currently attend public schools and wish to transfer to a qualified private school, for those children of military families stationed in Arizona, and for those students who are entering Kindergarten at a qualified private school. Help us provide the needed scholarships for Arizona students to attend Primavera School and The Orme School!

Primavera School (Grades K-6)

The sense of community at Primavera enables the students and their families to share a passion for learning that lasts a lifetime. Small classes, highly qualified teachers, involved parents, hands-on learning, and a positive attitude about education and the future are what a Primavera education provides. An emphasis on the education of the “whole child” at a school where student voices are heard and respected and where learning is challenging, relevant, and relationship-driven is demonstrated on a daily basis at Primavera School!
