Scholarships & Programs


Universal Pre-Kindergarten

This is a great new program that was passed by voters in 2002 to be made available by the fall of 2005. This program comes as a relief to many parents faced with finding affordable, high quality Pre-K education. The program is voluntary and provides parents a 3 or 6-hour day of pre-school for children who are eligible to begin Kindergarten the following school year.


McKay Scholarship

The John M. McKay scholarship allows parents of students with disabilities to choose the best learning environment for their children. The parent of a Florida public school student who is dissatisfied with the student’s progress may request a McKay scholarship to enroll in and attend a private school or choose another public school that better suits the students’ needs. The McKay program puts the power back into the parent’s hands. Schools are not “one size fits all.” Parents should look into all of their options and choose which best suits the needs of their individual child
