2017-2018 Update: For the 2017-18 school year, OSOTA families currently receiving the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship through Step-Up For Students, will be able to continue in the program.  We will no longer be accepting Step-Up for Students from new families. 


Step Up For Students provides legislatively authorized K-12 scholarships and related support to give economically disadvantaged families the freedom to choose the best learning options for their children. Click here to learn how the Income-based scholarship works.
