Scholarships

The Blake School accepts the following scholarships:

Step Up For Students is an income based scholarship program. You can apply at  stepupforstudents.org.

AAA Scholarship Foundation is also an income based scholarship program. You can apply at  aaascholarships.org.

Both AAA and Step Up For Students provide Economic and Other Assistance to Economically-Disadvantaged Families and Families of Children with Disabilities to Enable Them to Select the Best Schools for Their Children.

Florida created the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship in 2001 to give low-income students one learning option that is not available to them because of their financial circumstances. It allows them to consider whether a private school might be a better fit academically.

The program served 97,926 students in 1,712 private schools throughout the state during the 2016-2017 school year, and the mix is truly eclectic.


The Gardiner Scholarship

The Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) program helps parents individualize the educational plans for their children with certain special needs. The program, previously called the Personal Learning Scholarship Account, was named the Gardiner Scholarship in January of 2016. The new name honors Florida Senate President Andy Gardiner, who led the legislative effort to create the program, and his family. Gardiner and his wife Camille have championed the cause of children with unique abilities for many years. The Gardiners have two daughters and a son, Andrew, who has Down syndrome.

The Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) is different than other state scholarships in that it allows parents to personalize the education of their children with unique abilities by directing money toward a combination of programs and approved providers. These include schools, therapists, specialists, curriculum, technology – even a college savings account.

The Gardiner Scholarship amount varies according to grade and county of residence. The average amount for most students in the 2016-2017 school year is $10,000, and is based on a matrix level of 253.
