2017 IN REVIEW...
There are so many things to celebrate, following our 6th annual Gala on March 25, 2017.

You made a difference! The Arizona Lutheran Academy Gala was a huge success because of your participation and generosity. We praise God for his blessings, and we praise Him for what he did through you. Our donors and sponsors were amazing! You joined together on Saturday night to make a difference in the life of an ALA student. Gala attendance was terrific, you helped us exceed our goal—raising over $60,000! The atmosphere was lively and exciting. It was a great night for ALA and its students.

Thank you for your support and please join us in thanking our gracious God for his blessings.   

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3: 20, 21

    Our Goal
  • Our goal for this big event is to support our students in two ways:

    1. Campus improvements for our thirty-year-old facility. Longevity means we need an occasional update.

    2. Assist our ALA families with need-based tuition assistance. Many families need a helping hand to make an ALA education possible for their children. Tuition assistance is awarded based on demonstrated need. We know that academic and character development benefits students, families, and the community. Everyone wins.
