Students of Academy Prep Center of Tampa receive income-based tuition scholarships through Step Up For Students (SUFS). Because processing times can get very long, it is strongly advised that you apply for a scholarship as soon as possible. If SUFS is not yet open for new applications, request to have your name added to the SUFS “interest list” to be notified as soon as it does. Every new Academy Prep student must have a scholarship award by June 26, 2020. There is no fee to apply for a scholarship.

Note: Students who qualify for the federal school meals program (either free or reduced school meals) will qualify for an income-based scholarship.

If your student does NOT qualify for an income-based scholarship, STOP: Your student does NOT qualify for admission to Academy Prep.

For further information, please contact Luly Socias, Admissions and Scholarship Coordinator at 813-248-5600 ext. 1111.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and to insure everyone’s health and safety, there will be no admissions test. In lieu of a test score, applicants are asked to submit any recent (i.e., within the last 1-2 school years) standardized test score such as FSA, MAP, SAT10, Iowa, etc. with the school application.




The admissions committee will review all submitted applications and accompanying documents. Summer session is June 8 – 26, 2020. Students will be invited to summer session based upon the strength of a complete school application. Students who show a strong work ethic during the summer session are the most likely to be extended an offer of admission for August.
