Tuition Assistance

The Geneva School offers tuition assistance to families with students in grades K–12 (students entering K4 and international students are not eligible for tuition assistance).

The Geneva School utilizes the online service of FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to help determine how much assistance the school will provide to families. In addition, TGS also accepts the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship (FTC), the Florida Empowerment Scholarship (FES), and the Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) administered by Step Up For Students (students must meet Geneva’s admission requirements and be accepted). A family may submit an application both Geneva and Step Up for Students. Parents are responsible for any amount not covered by scholarship and/or tuition assistance. Please see the explanations below for information about each agency. The Geneva School does not accept the McKay scholarship.

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment is an independent, third party company that conducts unbiased and confidential financial analysis to determine a family’s need for financial aid. Geneva receives a confidential report outlining a family’s financial situation based on the information obtained in their application and supporting tax documents. The application fee is nominal, and any family who is unable to pay full tuition because of financial need is encouraged to submit an application. Decisions are based on a family’s financial need and school funds available.

If a family has already enrolled and the deadlines outlined below are missed or they decide not to apply for tuition assistance, full tuition is required to be paid (less any tuition assistance awarded) whether or not a student attends for all, part, or none of the school year.

Questions? Please contact Elizabeth Yawn in the accounting office at The Geneva School (321-422-0225) or by using the form on the Contact Us page. 

Who?FACTS Application Deadline2019 Tax Return Submission Deadline
Current FamiliesMarch 31

If a current family does not apply for tuition assistance by March 31, then they become obligated to pay the full tuition for the next school year, even if they do not receive any tuition assistance.

If a current family applies by the March 31 deadline, they may choose to un-enroll their student if they do not receive the amount needed and no tuition for the following school year will be charged. A family has three business days to accept or decline their scholarship once they are notified.
April 30
New FamiliesNew families should apply to FACTS at the same time they apply to Geneva.

The admission office will notify families regarding a student's acceptance, and the business office will notify families regarding tuition assistance. After hearing from both offices, families will have three business days to accept or decline their scholarship.
April 30 or within a week of FACTS application

Step Up For Students Scholarships

Step Up For Students is a state-approved nonprofit scholarship funding organization that helps administer three scholarships for Florida schoolchildren: the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship (FTC) and the Florida Empowerment Scholarship (FES) for low-income families, and the Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) for children with certain special needs. Families and students must qualify for the scholarship and apply directly to Step Up For Students. Students must be accepted at The Geneva School before scholarship is awarded.

FES (Florida Empowerment Scholarship) is a new state-funded scholarship which is similar to the existing FTC (Florida Tax Credit) scholarship program for low-income families. The qualifying income level for FES is higher than FTC. However, this program only accepts new kindergarten students and new students in higher grades who were in a Florida public school the prior year.

There is no fee to apply for the scholarships administered by Step Up For Students. Renewal families will have processing priority until January 31. If a renewal applies on or after February 1, they will lose their priority status over new applications. New applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis if funding is available.

Families applying for the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship (FTC) for the first time must meet the following qualifications:

  • Students must be entering kindergarten–12th grade
  • Students entering kindergarten must be five on or before September 1
  • Students entering first grade must be six on or before September 1
  • The family income must be at or below the income guidelines outlined in the Step Up For Students website www.stepupforstudents.org.

Families applying for the Florida Empowerment Scholarship (FES) for the first time must meet the following qualifications:

  • The student is eligible to enroll in kindergarten or has spent the prior school year (2019–20) in attendance at a Florida public school. Prior attendance means the student was enrolled in and in attendance at a Florida public school during both the October and February student counts.
  • The family income must be at or below the income guidelines for FES or the student must meet other qualifications. Please see the Step Up For Students website for more information: www.stepupforstudents.org.

Families applying for the Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA), for students with special needs, should review the information provided on the Step Up For Students website: www.stepupforstudents.org.
