2016-2017 Tuition and Fees

 

Program Menu

Lexis Preparatory School strongly believes that each child has a unique learning style. It is counter to that principle to expect all children to adapt to the teaching style of an instructor or school. Rather, at Lexis, we customize the curriculum to optimize each child’s learning, so that learning becomes natural and enjoyable.

Our tuition is structured in an equally customized manner. After obtaining a thorough history from parents and past teachers, reviewing recent educational evaluations, and observing each child, a customized curriculum is developed for each Lexis student through a combination of classroom-based courses (10 – 12 students), small-group instruction (2 – 4 students), and individualized instruction.

•   Executive Function Skills/Study and Organizational Skills

Executive Function is the ability to organize and prioritize one’s cognitive processes. This includes selective attention and the ability to plan ahead, stop and start activities, shift from one activity to another, and monitor one’s own behavior. Executive function and study skills are strongly emphasized within the classroom, and throughout the day. Our emphasis on executive function skill building will teach students how to organize their time, plan for future tasks, complete assignments on time, and organize their materials (bookbags, lockers, notebooks). Students will learn how to effectively use a planner and organizer to break down assignments, manage activities and plan for upcoming projects. Our staff will work with parents to ensure that what is learned in session is transferred to activities at home.

•   Social Skills Enhancement

The ability to easily make new friends, the talent to maintain friendships, and the ability to recognize social cues in all our relationships are without question the most important skills children learn in life. Our staff recognizes the critical importance of social skills enhancement and will support the children throughout the day. In addition, the program emphasizes character education, conflict resolution and problem-solving skills.

Scholarship Opportunities

Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA)

Empowerment accounts are set up by the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) for students who are currently transferring from a public school to a private school. A student qualifies for an ESA if he/she has had 100 PUBLIC school days in the previous year and has an IEP, MET (Multidiscipline Education Team), or 504 plan. The amount of ESA funds will vary depending on the diagnosis of your child.

School Tuition Organizations (STO)

Arizona taxpayers are allowed to redirect state income taxes they owe into scholarships for students attending private K-12 schools through tax credit donations to STOs. These donations qualify for a dollar-for-dollar credit on your Arizona state income taxes up to the annual limits allowed by law or the actual tax liability, whichever is less. STOs allocate 90% or more of all tax credit donation revenue toward student scholarships. STOs may also use corporate contributions to provide scholarships to families in Arizona to use for private school tuition. Many of these scholarships are based on financial need and/or specific student qualifications.

STO in Arizona:

Arizona Private Education Scholarship Fund

Tuition Organization For Private Schools(TOPS For Kids)

Arizona School Choice Trust

  • Awards low-income families tuition scholarships to enable their children to attend private elementary and secondary schools (K-12).

Arizona Scholarship Fund

  • Assists Arizona's families in providing their children with a private education.

Lexie's Law

  • Provides scholarships through scholarship tuition organizations for special needs students to attend private schools.  
 

These funds would reduce the tuition and fees owed to Lexis by the amount of additional funding received, minus any administration fee(s) charged.
