Blossom Montessori School for the Deaf is a private non-profit school recognized by the Florida Department of Education. Blossom Montessori School for the Deaf admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs and athletic and other school-administered programs.
All potential students are evaluated, prior to admission, by our Blossom teaching staff and our Blossom partners. At Blossom we want to make sure that we are able to meet the individualized needs of each child we accept in order to provide them the very best education. In some cases, if we believe Blossom is not the best placement for a child, we will make recommendations to the family about alternative education choices that may be better suited to their needs.
Blossom relies on parents, families, private donations, foundations, corporations and service groups to fulfill the balance in funding associated with the high level of services and programs we offer our students.
Some of Blossom’s students are eligible for the McKay Scholarship, a program provided by the State of Florida for children with disabilities who have spent a minimum of one year in a Florida public school. Other scholarships that students may be eligible for are the Step Up for Students Florida Empowerment Unique Abilities (formerly Gardiner Special Needs) Scholarship (SUFS FES-UA), Step Up for Students Family Empowerment Educational Options Income-Based Scholarship (SUFS FES-EO), Step Up for Students Florida Tax Credit Income-Based Scholarship (SUFS FTC), Step Up for Students Hope Scholarship (SUFS Hope) or Early Learning Coalition School Readiness Scholarship (ELC SR).
