Scholarships are accepted by the Temple College Preparatory for all students. The John McKay Scholarship is for students with learning disabilities, handicapped, Individual Education Program (IEP) file or Special Needs. Below is a brief summary of each state approved scholarship program with a link to their website.
Our staff is available to assist you with the enrollment process. Students can enroll in most scholarship programs anytime throughout the school year.
The John McKay Scholarship
The McKay Scholarship for Students with Disabilities Program expands statewide the school choice program originally created in 1999 as a pilot program. The scholarships are available for eligible students with disabilities to attend an eligible public or private school of their choice. Students with disabilities include K-12 students who are documented as having a mental handicap, a physical impairment; and a specific learning disability. Any parent of a public school student with a disability who has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) and who is dissatisfied with the student's progress may receive a McKay Scholarship if the student meets the program's requirements. In order to be eligible for the McKay Scholarship Program, a student must apply for the program prior to withdrawing from public school. The student must also have an Individual Education Plan (IEP), and:
- Have been enrolled and reported for funding in a Florida public school during the October and February Florida Education Finance Program surveys (Grades K-12);
- Have been a pre-kindergarten student who was enrolled and reported for funding in a Florida public school during the preceding October and February Florida Education Finance Program surveys and was at least 4 years old.
Corporate Tax Credit Scholarship - (Children First Florida Scholarships*)
The Corporate Tax Credit Scholarship Program (CTC) was established in 2001 to provide an income tax credit for corporations that contribute money to nonprofit Scholarship-Funding Organizations (SFOs) that award scholarships to students from families with limited financial resources. The purpose of the tax credit is to:
- Encourage private, voluntary contributions to nonprofit SFOs;
- Expand education opportunities for children from families that have limited financial resources; and
- Enable children to achieve a greater level of excellence in their education.
A student is eligible for a scholarship from a nonprofit SFO through this program, if the student qualifies for free or reduced-price school lunches under the National School Lunch Act. The Department of Revenue (DOR) and the Department of Education (DOE) cooperatively administer the Corporate Tax Credit Scholarship Program.
The DOE is responsible for adopting rules necessary to determine the eligibility of SFOs and identifying students eligible to participate in the program. Additional parent FAQs related to the Corporate Tax Credit Scholarship Program are available on the Scholarship Funding website.
