Step Up for Students Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA)
Saint Louis Covenant School also accepts the Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA), a program that helps parents individualize the educational plans for their children with certain special needs. The program, previously called the Personal Learning Scholarship Account, was named the Gardiner Scholarship in January of 2016. The new name honors Florida Senate President Andy Gardiner, who led the legislative effort to create the program, and his family. The Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) is different than other state scholarships in that it allows parents to personalize the education of their children with unique abilities by directing money toward a combination of programs and approved providers. These include schools, therapists, specialists, curriculum, and technology – even a college savings account. Information on this program can also be found by visiting www.stepupforstudents.org.
Starting 2020-21 : Under the Gardiner Scholarship, parents must pay tuition and fees for their child and be reimbursed by the scholarship. St. Louis Covenant School will not accept direct payments from the scholarship.
