It is our goal to keep Paragon affordable for as many families as possible. Gross tuition for 2019-20 is $20,500, but on average Paragon students receive approximately $11,500 in annual state funding
Florida's school choice programs allow parents to choose the best educational setting - public or private - for their child. The McKay Scholarship Program for Students with Disabilities provided over 31,000 Florida students with special needs the opportunity to attend a participating private school during the 2017-18 school year.
The Gardiner Scholarship Program provides eligible students a scholarship that can be used to purchase approved services or products in order to design a customized educational program for the student. Scholarships can be used for specialized services such as speech or occupational therapy, instructional materials, tuition at an eligible private school, contributions to a college prepaid account and more. The program is directly administered by state-approved nonprofit scholarship funding organizations.
Tuition assistance is available for families with a demonstrated need. Once a child has been offered admission, parents have the opportunity to apply for tuition assistance through the FACTS portal. For families who qualify, grants are typically equal to one-half to two-thirds of the remaining tuition after the McKay or Gardiner funding is applied against gross tuition.
Following are three are examples of how a family with a demonstrated need for tuition assistance might pay tuition in order for their child to attend Paragon. Note that these are examples only and do not represent actual or implied assistance grants for any student. Grants will be made on a case by case basis.
Net tuition can be paid in one lump sum (July) or in 10 monthly payments (July - April).
