FINANICAL AID

KINDERGARTEN through 12th GRADE

 

Master’s Academy is a not-for-profit corporation. Tuition is set according to operating costs, and is kept as affordable as possible to provide a quality biblical worldview education and environment for our students. To assisting in this effort, application and enrollment fees are nonrefundable and are not covered by available types of financial aid. Additionally, school fees are never discounted.

 

Families in need of tuition assistance may apply for financial aid in the following ways:

Step-Up for Students Scholarship. This was created to help alleviate the enormous educational challenges faced by children in Florida who live in or near poverty. The application season for current recipients opens in mid-October for the following school year and the application season for new recipients opens in the spring for the following school year.  Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis so please be timely in applying. More information may be found at HERE.

McKay Scholarship. The McKay Scholarship for Students with Disabilities Program provides scholarships for eligible K-12 students with special needs. Through the NILD (National Institute for Learning Development) Program, Master’s Academy can service students with a specific learning disability. More information may be found at HERE.

Master’s Academy Financial Aid Scholarship. If a family in financial need does not qualify for a Step-Up or McKay scholarship, or the family qualifies but tuition still presents a hardship, they may apply for a Master’s Academy Financial Aid Scholarship. This scholarship is limited to a maximum of fifty percent of tuition.

 

How to Apply for a Master’s Academy

FINANCIAL AID SCHOLARSHIP

Master’s Academy uses the financial screening program FACTS Grant & Aid which verifies financial need and makes a specific financial aid recommendation directly to the school if a family qualifies. The school’s financial aid committee will review the recommendation and determine what, if any, financial aid will be offered, based on several factors, including available funding and the total number of families applying. This assistance is very limited.  Completed FACTS Grant & Aid applications, including all tax forms, must be submitted on or before April 30th to be considered.

 

The FACTS website provides a downloadable worksheet to help organize everything needed before completing the on-line application process. The FACTS application is considered incomplete if tax forms and other required documents are missing. Parents must access FACTS through the Master’s Academy website.  The non-refundable fee of $35 (effective February 1, 2021) is paid directly to FACTS by debit or credit card.

For this application CLICK HERE to be directed to the Master’s Academy FACTS Grant & Aid link. Applications are accepted beginning February 1 for the school year that begins in August.  All completed applications submitted by the May 1st deadline will be reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee. Completed applications must include tax forms and any other required documents.  Applications will not be considered if they are incomplete. Award letters will be emailed on June 1st. Award letters must be acknowledged as accepted or declined within a week of receipt. If any funds remain after the first award cycle, completed applications submitted after May 1st will be reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee and considered for award based on need.

  • The FACTS application must be completed in full, including any tax forms and other required documents, by April 30th.
