Financial Aid Resources
At MDCA we know a Christian education may not be in everyone’s budget. So we offer multiple resources for your child to receive the education they deserve.
MDCA Financial Aid
Mount Dora Christian Academy seeks to provide financial aid to those students in grades K-12 whose family can provide documentation of need. Student employment, academic merit scholarships and athletic awards are not offered. Our goal is to help children with financial limitations receive a Christian education, develop leadership potential, and reach their God-given dreams and aspirations. The tuition assistance program helps to achieve social and economic diversity within our school community. This goal is an integral and respected part of our school’s philosophy.
Financial aid is offered as a reduction of full tuition, which is determined through an analysis of family financial need. Financial need is determined by an independent source, and all information is confidential.
Current salary, net worth, assets, and debts of the parents or guardian are considered in determining the amount of financial aid given. We are not able to meet 100% of demonstrated need for each applicant, and frequently, the number of qualified applicants exceeds the financial aid resources of the school. Therefore, there is no guarantee that every qualified applicant will receive financial aid. Families are required to complete the financial aid application process each year financial assistance is needed. Awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis with an application deadline of May 15. Click on the FACTS link below to begin the application process.
Step Up for Students
Step Up for Students is an initiative of the Florida Tax Credit (FTC) Scholarship Program. The innovative program provides education scholarships for qualifying low-income students who are entering kindergarten through grade 12. The scholarships give low-income parents the opportunity to choose the K-12 school that best meets their children’s needs. The scholarships cover up to a projected $6,420 for private school tuition and books. There is no fee to apply for the Florida Tax Credit (FTC) scholarship and they only accept online applications. We urge you to apply as soon as possible. Funds are limited and first applications completed will be first served. Applications are complete when all documents have been submitted.
