We want to help every family afford a Catholic school education. Families have various ways of receiving financial support. In addition to the programs below, we encourage every family to discuss their financial needs with their local principal or pastor. A key part of our mission is to allow families of all backgrounds to have access to our schools.
Scholarships for Private Schools provide an average of $7,000 per year per child for K-12 private schools. Families can qualify based upon either their income level or the diagnosis of a defined special need.
The Florida Tax Credit Scholarship, Family Empowerment Scholarship and Family Empowerment Scholarship for Unique Abilities (formerly Gardiner): Provide families a choice of financial assistance toward private school tuition and fees. Beginning in the 2021/22 school year, siblings of participants in the Family Empowerment Scholarship based on a special need are also eligible, as are children placed in foster homes or whose parents are actively enrolled in the US armed services.
