Payment of the matriculation fee and completion of the re-enrollment process by February 13th secures each returning student’s place for the coming year.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is typically available to families who otherwise may not be able to attend LCS due to financial constraints. This assistance is based on financial need and does not cover 100% of tuition costs. Additionally, LCS participates in the Step Up For Students scholarship program for families who qualify for free or reduced lunch in the public school system and the McKay Scholarship for students with an IEP or 504 plan. If you qualify for and/or are awarded financial assistance through one of these two programs, these resources must be accessed prior to applying for financial aid through LCS.

New families must first complete the online application process for school admissions and will then receive a link to FACTS. FACTS is a third party service that processes the financial/income information necessary in awarding financial aid. Based on FACTS’ formulas and total amount of resources available (including awards from Step Up or McKay), FACTS informs the school of a recommended amount of assistance. There are March 15, April 15 and May 15 deadlines for applying and submitting all necessary tax information. To find out the required documents to be submitted for the financial aid application, please call Matt Green in the Business Office at 863-688-2771.

Lunches are charged to a lunch account and tickets are no longer sold in the front office.  Lunch money for your family may be deposited in an account through several options: by using a credit card system, by transferring funds electronically or by sending a check directly to the Business Office.  Each time a child makes a purchase, it will show up on your personal account on ParentsWeb.  Please monitor your family’s balance regularly and deposit funds when the account is low.
