state funded scholarships
Lake Mary Preparatory School accepts Florida Empowerment Scholarship (FES), Florida Empowerment Scholarship for Unique Abilities (FES-UA), and the HOPE Scholarship. You can learn more by visiting Step Up for Students. These scholarships can award $7,000 to $10,000 per student and can help defray the cost of tuition. It's important to note that a parentally placed private school student with a disability does not have an individual right to receive some or all of the special education and related services that the child would receive if enrolled in a public school under the IDEA.
Need-based Financial Aid
Lake Mary Prep allocates a set amount in need-based financial aid to qualified families. Financial aid must be applied for and evaluated annually. The application process for financial aid is self-managed and allows families to track each step from start to finish. Lake Mary Preparatory does not offer academic, athletic, or other merit-based scholarships. Additionally, Lake Mary Preparatory limits the awarding of financial aid to two children per family at a time. International students are not eligible for financial aid.
Assessing Financial Need
To objectively determine each family's need for assistance, Lake Mary Prep uses TADS, an independent school management program. TADS provides a confidential, comprehensive analysis of how much a family is able to reasonably contribute toward the cost of tuition. Disbursement of funds is contingent upon the results of a completed TADS application and a review by our Tuition Assistance Committee.
Note: For new families applying for financial aid, a complete admissions application and financial aid form must be on file with the Admissions Office to be considered.
Lake Mary Preparatory School awards financial aid to students without regard to race, gender, religion, national origin, or disability.
