The innovative program provides K-12 education scholarships for qualifying low-income students who are entering Kindergarten through Fifth Grade OR middle school students who attended public school the previous year. The scholarships give low-income parents the opportunity to choose the K-12 school that best meets their children’s needs. The scholarships cover up to a projected $5,275 for private school tuition. Please visit www.stepupforstudents.org for more information or to begin the application process.

Do you accept the McKay scholarship?

Yes, Trinity Lutheran School does accept the McKay scholarship. However, we are a small school with limited resources and want to be sure that we are the right environment for your child. We will need a current copy of your child’s IEP or 504 Plan, their most recent report card and FCAT scores, teacher recommendations, and a copy of the last report card issued. After our principal reviews the information, he will be able to make an informed decision about enrollment for your child.
