A Note About Vouchers: Tampa Prep does not accept any governmental funding for tuition costs, including the Florida Step Up for Students Scholarship.  As an independent school, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide the curriculum and culture that we deem best for our students.  Accepting outside funding would leave the school vulnerable to governmental interference, potentially jeopardizing the independence that we cherish. Tampa Prep offers need-based financial aid for those who qualify.

Tuition Payment

Upon a student’s enrollment, the payment of tuition and fees for the full academic year is an unconditional obligation. No portion of tuition or fees paid or outstanding will be refunded or canceled, notwithstanding the absence, withdrawal, or dismissal of the child from Tampa Preparatory School during the academic year. This obligation may be canceled by notifying the Admissions Office at thonegger@tampaprep.org in writing on or before May 1st, preceding the school year, that the child will not enroll.
