We are so pleased that you are interested in enrollment at Riverbend Academy. As with most private schools, tuition can be a challenge for some families. That is why we have two possible opportunities for families to be able to overcome that obstacle: the Step Up for Students financial assistance scholarship and Riverbend Academy's own scholarship program. Now parents have the opportunity to give their child an education that is priceless!
As of the 2017-2018 school year, we will be accepting the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship from Step Up for Students financial assistance. This is our first year to introduce this and we hope it proves to be helpful to families. If you are seeking financial aid to attend Riverbend Academy, this is your first step.
Please go to https://www.stepupforstudents.org. Then follow the directions to create an account and begin the application process. At the peak of their season, applications can take several weeks to be processed. Please check back at Step Up for Students often to view your updated status or to view requests for any further documentation that may be required.
If you are unable to receive assistance through Step Up for Students, then Riverbend Academy has its own funded scholarship program that you may apply to check eligibility. This is your second step. Our applications for financial assistance are handled through ISMFAST.com. Please click the link below to begin the application process with Riverbend Academy http://www.ismfast.com/FastPage.php?id=3b048404bb0959e97157d0eaa5a77218.
This application process through FAST may take a few weeks. The maximum scholarship available through this program is 50%. If awarded, you will be notified by the school.
Should you need further information regarding these scholarship opportunities, please contact the school office at 386-615-0986. We will be happy to assist you.
