Our Commitment to Access

Canterbury School of Florida is committed to accepting students for admission from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. We realize that each family situation is unique and therefore, tuition at Canterbury is not "one-size-fits-all." Our Variable Tuition program allows us to adjust a family's tuition rates to help meet their unique financial position. Canterbury takes a need-based approach to Variable Tuition. Need-based is defined as the difference between what it costs to attend Canterbury School and a family’s ability to pay. While we attempt to meet a percentage of need, no child receives full tuition. Further, we do not offer scholarships or grants based on merit or athletic ability. International students are not eligible for Variable Tuition.


Apply for Variable Tuition

Please apply by March 15 for priority consideration. Applications are accepted after that date but resources may be limited.

We also accept the Step Up For Students Scholarship. Step Up For Students provides legislatively authorized K-12 scholarship programs and related support to give economically disadvantaged families the freedom to choose the best learning options for their children.

  • NEW TO STEP UP: Apply to Step Up beginning in February.
  • RENEWAL FAMILIES: Renew your child's Step Up scholarship beginning in October. Be sure to note the renewal deadline on the Step Up website. We know the decision to attend private school is a major financial commitment. Please feel free to contact us to discuss.
