Voluntary Pre-K (VPK)
The State of Florida provides 540 hours of VPK instruction tuition to eligible students. Eligible students must be four years old by September 1st of the school year for which they are applying.
Our Early Childhood program participates in this initiative and offers VPK instructional hours on specific days. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday throughout the school year are the designated days for qualified VPK students. These specified days allow time off for students on Mondays and Fridays of each week, without interruption to VPK hours.
