Even in difficult financial times a Catholic education is a value many families are not willing to do without. We see many Catholic schools in our neighboring towns close, yet our Saint Anthony community is holding strong to keep our “Heritage of Excellence” thriving. Our parents are so pleased with their children’s success that they are willing to make sacrifices and doing all they can to keep their children enrolled.

On May 11, 2021, Governor DeSantis signed House Bill 7045 into law, resulting in several changes to the state's K-12 scholarship programs, including an extensive expansion of the Family Empowerment Scholarship Program. The McKay Scholarship Program has joined the Family Empowerment Scholarship Program under the Unique Abilities category.
House Bill 7045 expanded the Family Empowerment Scholarship Program to include two branches of eligibility, the Family Empowerment Scholarship for Educational Options (FES-EO) and the Family Empowerment Scholarship for Students with Unique Abilities (FES-UA).
Family Empowerment Scholarship for Educational Options (FES-EO). This branch of the FES Scholarship Program is eligibility based on family income and provides the option for K-12 students to attend a participating private school. Families apply through one of the approved scholarship funding organizations (SFO), which are responsible for determining and distributing funding to private schools.
Family Empowerment Scholarship for Students with Unique Abilities (FES-UA). This branch of the Family Empowerment Scholarship Program is designed to offer families of students with disabilities, as young as 3 years of age, access to additional education options. Families may choose to enroll their student in another public school, or they may take the opportunity to receive a personal education savings account (ESA) for their student. With an ESA, parents receive a deposit of public funds into government-authorized savings accounts with restricted, but multiple, uses. An ESA can be used to fund not only items such as private school tuition and fees, but also online learning programs, private tutoring, community college costs, higher education expenses and other approved customized learning services and materials. Families apply and annually renew for participation in FES UA through one of the approved SFOs, which are responsible for determining eligibility, awarding and distributing funding to eligible student accounts, and approving eligible expenditures.
More families than ever are eligible for a scholarship, including:
- Siblings of students participating in the Family Empowerment Scholarship, including siblings of students who are eligible based on a special need (FES-UA).
- Dependent children of a member of the United States Armed Forces may qualify, regardless of household income. This includes members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, or Space Force and reservists.
- Dependent children of a law enforcement officer, regardless of household income.
