A federal lawsuit filed by an Arizona man alleges he was deceived into attending a public school and being offered admission to a private school.
The suit alleges a man who enrolled at Scottsdale High School in 2014 was offered admission at a private academy, only to be told he would have to wait until the end of the year to enroll in the public school.
He sued the school district and the academy that allegedly enrolled him, alleging the school misled him about the cost of tuition and what would happen if he did not graduate.
The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Arizona on April 13.
In court documents, the plaintiff claims the private academy offered him a discount on tuition at $2,200 for students who were in high school and college.
The plaintiff also alleges the private school offered him admission to the school, but said he was told he could enroll later that year.
According to the lawsuit, the defendant allegedly offered the plaintiff the discount on the condition that he attend a private, exclusive high school, and then later told the plaintiff he would not have to pay tuition, which he said he did.
The defendant also allegedly told the plaintiffs that if they enrolled in the private Academy, he would receive a tuition rebate on top of the scholarship that was originally offered to the plaintiff, according to the suit.
In a statement to The Huffington Pager, the Scottsfield Unified School District said it was “aware of the lawsuit” and that it had “been notified by a family member” about the matter.
The statement also said the plaintiff has filed an application for relief with the court.
