Financial Aid

SCS desires to provide a quality Christian education for as many students as possible and offers several financial aid options to assist families with tuition.


McKay-ScholarshipThe McKay Scholarships for Students with Disabilities Program provides students with special needs the opportunity to attend a participating private school.

Step-up-for-StudentsStep Up For Students is a program that provides K-12th grade scholarships for qualifying low-income students.  The scholarships cover up to $5,886 for private school tuition and related fees, depending on income. 

Tuition-GrantsSCS offers tuition grants to families based on financial need. We regret that we are unable to accept further Tuition Grant applications for the 2017-18 school year. If additional funding becomes available, we will post an update to this web page.

Grants are allocated from Sarasota Christian’s operating budget and gifts from individual donors.  Grants are awarded based on a professional, confidential financial assessment by FACTS Management Company.  Limited need-based funding is also available for students of minority racial status.  Click here to download more information on the application process for these funds or contact the Admissions Office.
