Family Empowerment Scholarships
On May 11, 2021, Governor DeSantis signed House Bill 7045 into law, resulting in several changes to the state's K-12 scholarship programs, including an extensive expansion of the Family Empowerment Scholarship Program.
House Bill 7045 expanded the Family Empowerment Scholarship Program to include two branches of eligibility, the Family Empowerment Scholarship for Educational Options (FES-EO) and the Family Empowerment Scholarship for Students with Unique Abilities (FES-UA).
Family Empowerment Scholarship-Unique Abilities (FES-UA) formerly McKay
Effective July 1, 2022, students currently participating in the McKay Scholarship Program will join the Family Empowerment Scholarship Program under the Unique Abilities category (FES UA). Current McKay families will have the opportunity to remain in their current public or private school choice setting or to utilize the additional options available under the FES UA education savings account model to further customize their child's education experience for their specific needs.
Siblings of participating FES UA students are eligible for a scholarship to attend a private school under the Educational Options branch of the Family Empowerment Scholarship program, regardless of the family’s income level. Information on siblings should be submitted to your selected SFO during the transition process.
Family Empowerment Scholarship for Educational Options (FES-EO)
This branch of the scholarship eligibility is based on family income and provides the option for K-12 students to attend a participating private school. Families apply through one of the approved scholarship funding organizations (SFO), which are responsible for determining and distributing funding to private schools.

Students enrolled in a Florida public school that have been bullied, harassed, assaulted, threatened and or other violent acts may qualify to enroll in Esther's School.
Hope Scholarship Program
The Hope Scholarship is for students in grades kindergarten through 12 who are enrolled in a Florida public school and have been bullied, harassed, assaulted, threatened and or other violent acts to transfer to another public school or enroll in an approved private school.
Florida Legislature created the income-based Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program to assure that lower-income children have more learning options.
Florida Tax Credit Scholarship
Florida created the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship in 2001 to give low-income students one learning option that is not available to them because of their financial circumstances. It allows them to consider whether a private school might be a better fit academically.
The program served 99,113 students in 1,896 private schools throughout the state during the 2020-21 school year, and the mix is truly eclectic.
