Thank you to current families who have submitted re-registration materials for the 2020-2021 school year and have taken advantage of the early bird discount.

Step Up for Students Scholarship

We have been informed that SUFS has issued Student Award letters without school ID numbers on them. This number is needed by the school in order to enroll students in the scholarship program. If your family has already received and brought a letter in, you will need to bring an updated letter once the ID number has been assigned. Thank you for your understanding. Please contact Ms. Pearce if you have any questions.

Applications for renewal families are open. SUFS Renewal families have priority processing until February 29, 2020. Families interested in applying for SUFS for the first time are encouraged to sign up for the interest list on the Step Up website.

Florida Empowerment Scholarship

The school will re-enroll students automatically for 2020-2021 AFTER receiving the 2020-2021 registration form and fee. Please notify Ms. Pearce, school accountant, if you are not planning to continue using the FES. If a family has a current student on the FES and would like to add a sibling who would qualify, they should not complete a SUFS online application, instead a form will be emailed to eligible families by SUFS the first week of February.
