McKay Scholarship Program
Faith Community Christian Academy accepts McKay Scholarships subject to the standard Admission Procedure for all potential new students.
The John M. McKay Scholarship Program allows parents of students with disabilities to choose the best learning environment for their children.
The parent of a Florida public school student who is dissatisfied with the student’s progress may request a McKay Scholarship to enroll in and attend a private school or choose another public school that better suits the student’s needs.
The scholarship is equal to the amount of state generated funding the student would have received or the cost of the private school’s tuition and fees, whichever is less. If parents choose to enroll their child in a private school, McKay funds will be mailed directly to the private school four times a year. The parents will then endorse the payment over to the private school.
The McKay Program puts the power back into the parent’s hands. Schools are not “one size fits all.” Parents should look into all of their options and choose which best suits the needs of their individual child.
McKayScholarship.com firmly believes that the McKay program is not about public vs. private school. It is about each and every individual child. It is about the parent s of those children, who know their child better than anyone, and in turn, know what is BEST for their child
Step Up For Students
Step Up For Students was created to help alleviate the enormous educational challenges faced by children in Florida who live near poverty. The program provides Tax Credit Scholarships to students in K-12 who come from low-income families. These scholarships allow the students to consider a private school or an out-of-district public school that may better suit their individual needs, an option which already is available to families of greater financial means. This choice is not based on whether the public school is judged as succeeding or failing. Rather, it recognizes that different children learn in different ways and that our collective struggle is to help the students who often are at the greatest disadvantage in modern education.
