**ALL FAMILIES APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID MUST APPLY FOR THE FLORIDA TAX CREDIT SCHOLARSHIP. ANY AMOUNT AWARDED THROUGH FINANCIAL AID MAY BE REVOKED UNLESS CCHS RECEIVES EITHER AN AWARD OR DENIAL LETTER FROM AAA OR STEP UP FOR STUDENTS. FAMILIES THAT DO NOT QUALIFY FOR THE FLORIDA TAX CREDIT SCHOLARSHIP MAY STILL QUALIFY FOR A FINANCIAL AID AWARD THROUGH CCHS.
