Step Up for Students
Many of our families apply for state assistance to help pay for our private school tuition. State programs, such as Step Up for Students, allow families to choose a school that is right for their child without the financial burden. Currently, Sunflowers Academy accepts Step Up for Students scholarships from families who are eligible and accepted for admission at our school.

Step Up For Students was created to help alleviate the enormous educational challenges faced by children in Florida who live in or 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 participating 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.
