Guide to Private School Education

We are grateful to KIA AutoSport of Pensacola, for sponsoring our "Educating Pensacola," series and for their support of PMC's mission of educating, encouraging, and empowering local moms through the lifelong journey of parenthood.

In partnership with our friends at KIA Autosport of Pensacola, we are pleased to bring you the Pensacola Mom Collective Guide to Private School Education.

Recognizing that one of the most important decisions we make as parents is where to send our children to school, this guide provides a quick overview of local private education options in the Pensacola area.

Step Up for Students

Step Up for Students is a non-profit scholarship organization in the State of Florida.

K-12 students in Florida who meet the eligibility criteria for enrollment in a K-12 public school, regardless of their household income, can be awarded a scholarship to enroll in a private school. Funds can be used toward tuition, registration, books, and other related fees.
