STUDENT FINANCIAL AID
A Word from Dr. Williams. PHAA is committed to partnering with families to assist them
in giving their children a Christian education. Some parents think it is impossible, so never consider it. But because you are reading this, I believe you are willing to think about possibilities. Over the years, I have seen many, many families successfully educate their children in a Christian school who initially thought they couldn’t. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to talk with you about how it can be done. Please contact me at: 925-934-9261 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following scholarships are available to families that qualify. Please note the deadlines and information for applying.
