The McKay Scholarship Program allows parents of students with disabilities to choose the best academic environment for their children. This program provides a variety of options including the opportunity to attend a participating private school or transfer to another public school. Eligible students include students with disabilities who have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), and who were enrolled and reported for funding by a Florida school district the year prior to applying for a scholarship. Students with parents in the Armed Forces who transfer to Florida due to a permanent change in orders may also be eligible

The Family Empowerment Scholarship may be used towards private school tuition and fees.
With a Family Empowerment Scholarship (formerly Gardiner), your child has more learning options.

These include schools, therapists, specialists, curriculum, technology – even a college savings account.
