Scholarships

A School for all Neighborhoods

We believe that all students deserve the opportunity for Christian education. At Altamonte Christian School, we accept students who qualify for Florida Tax Credit Scholarship,  the Hope Scholarship, the McKay Scholarship, the Gardiner Scholarship, AAA Scholarship Foundation, and the Family Empowerment Scholarship.

Florida Tax Credit Scholarship

To expand educational opportunities for children of families that have limited financial resources and to enable children in this state to achieve a greater level of excellence in their education, the Florida Legislature created the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program in 2001. The law provides for state tax credits for contributions to nonprofit scholarship funding organizations, (SFOs). The SFOs then award scholarships to eligible children of low-income families.

Visit Step Up for Students to sign up for the interest list so that you can receive future communications about the scholarship.

 

If parents have any questions, please call 877-7FL-SUFS (877-735-7837), Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

 

In preparation for each upcoming application season, SUFS will send emails to renewal families and to families that have signed up for our interest list informing them of when the season will open and what steps they can take to make sure they are prepared when the application becomes available.

McKay Scholarship

Altamonte Christian School accepts some students with McKay Scholarships, a scholarship given to students with disabilities. Because ACS is committed to providing the best and highest quality education the student requires, we ask that you bring a copy of the student’s most recent IEP and psychological evaluation, along with their current report card, for us to determine whether we have the appropriate resources for your child’s success.

Gardiner Scholarship Program

The Gardiner Scholarship Program provides eligible students with a scholarship that can be used to purchase approved services or products in order to design a customized educational program for the student. Scholarships can be used for specialized services such as speech or occupational therapy, instructional materials, tuition at an eligible private school, contributions to a college prepaid account and more. The program is directly administered by state-approved nonprofit scholarship-funding organizations.

 

Family Empowerment Scholarship Program

The Family Empowerment Scholarship program is the first of its kind to extend support to middle-income families. The FES program will provide an educational lifeline to students waiting for an opportunity to find the school that will best work for them and puts more parents in the driver’s seat to determine the best educational environments for their children.
