Financial Aid

Upon acceptance and enrollment at Bayshore Christian School (or re-enrollment for current families), families with students in grades Kindergarten-12 may apply for financial aid. Not sure if you qualify? We encourage you to apply. The Financial Aid Team considers many factors when determining an award. Funding is limited, and offered on a need-based, first-come, first-served basis. Families must re-apply every year. Here are the steps for your financial aid application:
Step 1: APPLY to BCS or complete your child's RE-ENROLLMENT for the upcoming school year. 
Step 2: Complete the financial aid application.
Your financial aid application will request financial documents such as W-2s and tax preparation documents from the previous calendar year. Additionally, you will upload a Family Letter which will be reviewed by the Financial Aid Team. Please use this template when writing your family letter. You will upload it as a PDF during the application process. 
Step 3: FACTS Grant & Aid will review your application and provide their report.
The report will be reviewed by the Financial Aid Team at Bayshore Christian School, which may grant financial aid for a greater/lesser or exact amount as recommended by FACTS and determined by the school administration. You can review our Financial Aid Policies for additional information. 

Start your family's financial aid application. 


Bayshore Christian School currently accepts the following scholarships offered through the State of Florida:
  • Florida Tax Credit (FTC) income-based scholarship
  • Family Empowerment Scholarship - Educational Options (FES-EO)

Bayshore Christian School partners with Step Up For Students, a non-profit third party organization that works with the State to handle scholarship applications and administration. You can view scholarship details on the Step Up For Students website.

The 2023/2024 award amounts have been published. FTC/FES-EO and FES-UA award amounts are listed by grade level and county of residence. The Hope Scholarship typically follows the FTC/FES-EO award amounts. 

Please note: the Step Up for Students Scholarship does not cover all tuition and fees. The amount of the scholarship is applied to tuition only and all fees are still due from families. Please review our Tuition and Fees so you can financially plan for the upcoming school year
