Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance 

For families eager to provide their children with an exceptional Catholic education, it is our hope the challenges of the financial commitment can be overcome. There are a number of opportunities for assistance for qualifying families. 

  • Step Up for Students Scholarships 
    • Florida Tax Credit Scholarship 
    • Florida Empowerment Scholarship for Unique Abilities 
  • AAA Scholarship 
  • FACTS Grant & Aid 
  • Catholic Allowance for practicing Catholic families

Bishop Verot is only able to offer need-based assistance. There are no athletic or extra-curricular scholarships awarded. 

Except in unique circumstances, transfer students (students currently attending high school at another institution and applying for admission to Bishop Verot for grades 10-11) are not eligible for tuition assistance. Families of these students should meet with the Director of Finance prior to submitting an application.


Florida Tax Credit Scholarship 

Bishop Verot is excited to share our participation in the State of Florida's Step Up for Students program, offering families the opportunity to apply the new Florida Tax Credit Scholarship for tuition. Recent legislation signed by Governor DeSantis allows all Florida families access to this scholarship, regardless of household income (the only requirement is proof of residency). While the value of this scholarship may change annually, it currently is valued at close to $7700. Learn more at

The 2024-2025 application process will begin soon. Please visit to join the pre-registration information list and be notified when the application opens. 

Unique Abilities Scholarship (previously the McKay Scholarship)

The Unique Abilities Scholarship replaces the McKay Scholarship and is for students who have a documented learning disability. Beginning this year, if one child in the family qualifies for this scholarship all other children will automatically be awarded this scholarship as well, with the goal of keeping families together for their schooling. The value of this scholarship is over $10,000 per school year. Learn more about this scholarship, qualifications, and the application process at

The AAA Scholarship Foundation awards scholarships solely to qualifying low-income, disabled and displaced students. AAA Scholarships can provide up to $7,700 to help cover private school tuition and fees for families who qualify. Please visit parents/florida for more information on the application and approval process.

*Families are not eligible for both Step Up for Students Scholarships and AAA Scholarships - you may only select one.
