Scholarship Opportunities

We believe every child deserves a great education and are ready to help you get the financial aid you need. As a North Carolina resident, you may be eligible for financial assistance to help offset tuition through the Opportunity Scholarship Program or the Education Student Accounts (ESA+) Program. In many cases, scholarship awards cover the full cost of tuition at Coast to Mountain Preparatory Academy (CM Prep)!

The priority application period for the 2024-2025 ESA+ and Opportunity Scholarship programs has closed. Click here to be notified if the application reopens.

Opportunity Scholarship Program

The Opportunity Scholarship is an income-based award covering partial or full tuition at CM Prep and other non-public schools. Eligible families must meet household income requirements, and award decisions are subject to the available funds.
