Costs, Scholarships & Finacial Aid

At ACA, we truly believe that an investment in a private school education will prove to provide lifelong returns. It is our mission to provide an increased quality of education surrounded by a supportive community of dedicated staff members who promote and enable student success. Our goal is to provide an affordable, private education that enables each and every student, regardless of their financial background, to have access to a private school education. 

While many families would like their students to attend ACA, not all can afford the tuition. The ability to pay the tuition should not be the determining factor in whether a child applies to American Collegiate Academy.

We have made it our school policy to waive the remaining tuition balance which has not been covered by the state to families who are awarded scholarships. Therefore, families who receive financial aid are able to enroll in private school without any out of pocket tuition fees. 

We encourage all families to apply for the various scholarship programs. Our admissions team will guide you through the process and determine what scholarships you may be eligible for. We do not want students and families to miss opportunities due to family financial constraints. We are committed to working with families who are a good fit for our school, who support the school’s policies, and who are willing to contribute their time and/or resources for the greater good of the school and community.


 

Income Based - Florida Tax Credit (FTC) Scholarship: 

Families who meet the income guidelines may receive a Step Up for Students or AAA income scholarship. Families who qualify to receive a Florida Tax Credit (FTC) scholarship are also welcome to apply for in-school assistance. However, if you are fully awarded  by a state scholarship you will have no out-of-pocket tuition fees. 

 

Step Up for Students Scholarship: 

Step Up For Students empowers parents to pursue and engage in the most appropriate learning options for their children, with an emphasis on families who lack the financial resources to access these options. By pursuing this mission, we help public education fulfill the promise of equal opportunity.

Step Up For Students is a state-approved nonprofit scholarship funding organization that helps administer two scholarships for Florida schoolchildren: the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program (FTC) for lower-income families and the Gardiner Scholarship for children with certain special needs. Click here for more information 

Family Empowerment Scholarship:

The Family Empowerment Scholarship (FES) Program is one of Florida’s greatest victories for low-income and working-class families, and it is the first of its kind to extend support to middle-income families. Following the 2019 Legislative Session, Governor Ron DeSantis signed SB 7070, which creates the FES Program and provides 18,000 students life-changing education opportunities for academic and career success.

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.

McKay Scholarship:

American Collegiate Academy strives to provide a college preparatory classroom experience. A student receiving McKay funding with a current IEP, 504 Accommodation Plan, or Matrix Level 251, may be considered for admission to American Collegiate. ACA is limited in the accommodations we are able to provide; however, we are willing to review the information and inform parents of the accommodations available at our school. All students are expected to adhere to the same level of academic achievement for graduation and behavior expectations as set forth in our Parent-Student Handbook.
