Scholarships for Florida Private Schools
Scholarships for Florida Private Schools (K - 6th Grade)
St. Mark’s does accept families who qualify and receive the following state scholarships for private schools.
Florida Tax Credit Scholarships: For families who make under a specific gross income each year. (Ex. A family of four with an income up to $111,000 annually)
Family Empowerment Scholarships (FES) for siblings, children of United States Armed Forces, and law enforcement officers, regardless of household income.
Students who utilize the scholarships remain eligible, regardless of income, as long as they continue using the scholarship each year or until they graduate high school or turn 21
St. Mark’s can accommodate specific students who qualify for FES’s Unique Abilities (learning differences) Scholarships. These students will be assessed through the Admissions process and must demonstrate academic abilities that are on or above grade level and diagnosed with a unique ability that can be successfully accommodated by St. Mark’s while upholding the school’s mission to provide an academically advanced curriculum.
Families who qualify for FTC and FES receive an average of $7,700 per year for K-12 Private Schools.
St. Mark’s Offers tuition discounts in the following areas:
Sibling Discount: At St. Mark’s, we want to provide families the opportunity for all siblings to receive a St. Mark’s education and reward families’ dedication to investing in the school. Every additional sibling accepted to St. Mark’s receives a 10% discount on their yearly tuition rate.
Church Member Discount: All families who are members of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church receive a $500 discount per child on their yearly tuition rate.
Full Pay and Semester Pay Discounts: Families who choose the full pay payment plan for the school year receive a $400 discount off the yearly tuition rate. Families who choose the semester payment plan receive a $200 discount off the yearly tuition rate.
To make St. Mark’s accessible to the best and brightest students from all backgrounds, we offer financial assistance where possible at each grade level. To enable us to do this, St. Mark’s offers a yearly budget allocated to financial aid that is generously supported by the Church, Board of Trustees and donors. This amount is capped for each academic year and awarded on a case-by-case basis. A student’s application for admission is not affected by his/her application for Financial Aid. Priority is given to current families who adhere to the deadlines and have met all financial obligations to the school.
Financial aid awards are based upon FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment (FACTS) financial assessment of each applicant. Families applying for financial aid for the first time will receive a Financial Aid packet once you have submitted your Admissions application and requested assistance. Returning families currently receiving aid must submit a new application each year. A new Financial Aid packet will be sent to current families.
