SUNRISE COAST CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
The McKay Scholarships for Students with Disabilities Program
Originally created in 1999, provides scholarships 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 an intellectual disability; a speech or language impairment; a hearing impairment, including deafness; a visual impairment, including blindness; a dual sensory impairment; an emotional or behavioral disability; a specific learning disability, including, but not limited to, dyslexia, dyscalculia, or developmental aphasia; a traumatic brain injury; a developmental delay; or autism spectrum disorder.
Step Up For Students provides legislatively authorized K-12 scholarships and related support to give disadvantaged families the freedom to choose the best learning options for their children.
Step Up For Students is a state-approved nonprofit scholarship funding organization that helps administer two scholarships for Florida schoolchildren: the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program (FTC) for low-income families and the Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) for children with certain special needs.
Students who qualify will receive financial assistance toward either private school tuition and fees or transportation to a public school in another county/district.
