A parent must file an intent to participate in the McKay Scholarship Program via the Florida School Choice website. For the 2013 - 2014 school year, the intent can be filed after April 1, 2013. It is important to note that the child must be in the public school system at the time of filing the intent. The Chase Academy, Inc. will not be able to register and/or enroll any student in our school unless an intent has been filed.

We have provided you an easy-to-follow guide for obtaining your child's McKay Scholarship.

Deadlines for filing a parental intent and private school enrollment are statutory deadlines; therefore, the Department of Education cannot make exceptions if these deadlines are missed.

Failure to complete attendance verification will result in a postponement of scholarship payments until the next scheduled payment period. Attendance verification is done via the McKay District Verification Form. The McKay District Verification Form can be accessed from the above link on the left sidebar under FORMS.

The 2013 - 2014 deadlines for filing intent, private school enrollment and enrollment verification are detailed in the following chart. Please note that your intent to utilize the McKay Scholarship must be made by July 3, 2013.  Your student's enrollment must be completed by August 2, 2013 in order for a student to receive a first period Scholarship payment on September 1st.
