STEP UP FOR STUDENTS

 
In 2001, the Florida Legislature founded the Florida Tax Credit (FTC) Scholarship Program as a way to give low-income families a voice in their children’s education. This innovative program gives dollar-for-dollar state tax credits to corporations with a Florida tax liability as a funding mechanism for the scholarship program. Step Up For Students (SUFS), at present the only state-approved Scholarship Funding Organization, redistributes the funds as K-12 scholarships. The scholarships give parents the opportunity to choose the school that is right for their child. In 2012-13, CCS completed all of the requirements to become qualified to accept SUFS scholarship awards. It has been a blessing to have these students with SUFS awards join our Covenant family this year. CCS will continue to accept students with SUFS awards however, due to CCS’ rigorous curriculum, academic and behavioral expectations remain a part of the admissions process. For more information or to learn how your corporation can participate in the program, visit www.StepUpForStudents.org.

At CCS, we are praying for you and your family and the important decisions that must be made concerning how and by what means you will continue along this path of educating your child.  Our prayer is that God will lead you to entrust your children to CCS and provide the financial means as we strive to develop the cultural and spiritual leaders of tomorrow through classical and Christian education.
