Step Up for Students (formerly Florida Pride) is managed by the state and funded through corporate donations to give low income families a voice in their children's education. Many families have taken advantage of this opportunity. Click here to go to their website.
McKay Scholarships are managed by the state and designed to give the parents of students with special needs a choice in their children's education. Participation in this program requires the student have a current IEP from the public system. Due to limitations in staff and resources available to West Coast Christian Academy, we review each case individually before admission.

Worthy Student. Many times families work hard and struggle to make ends meet. Both the Bradenton and Palmetto Seventh-day Adventist Churches have funds set up for members that help to meet school financial needs. Other churches also help out their students. Check with your local church to see if you are eligible for financial aid.
