Affording Paragon

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

Scholarship & Funding Programs

We participate in the McKay and Gardiner scholarship programs through the state of Florida.  Funding typically ranges from $10,000 for students on Gardiner or students who have a McKay 253 matrix level, up to $15,500 for students on McKay with a 254-matrix level.

A brief summary of these programs is provided below, but for full details please visit their websites.

Tuition Assistance

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).
