Microschools

Coconut Grove

Now enrolling for August 2022! Grades 3-8.

With Primer Microschools, we’re reimagining the school system to create better educational experiences for everyone. Just like other schools, microschools are full-day and in-person, but our students get the individual attention they deserve and tools to learn at their own pace.

Financial aid

We offer financial aid to families so that cost is never a barrier to attending our schools. We accept scholarships offered by the state of Florida and offer our own income-based scholarships. In combination, these programs make our schools affordable for every family.

The state of Florida has income-based scholarships, scholarships for students with IEPs or special needs, and scholarships for students that have experienced bullying. You can learn more and apply for these programs at stepupforstudents.org.

Step Up for Students scholarships

Once you apply for the Step Up for Students scholarship and receive an email awarding that scholarship, there’s nothing further to do at this time. We recognize that Step Up for Students has communicated an August 1 deadline. You may receive an email notice from them informing you that your scholarship is no longer active. There’s nothing to worry about and nothing to do at this time. We are in communication with Step Up for Students and these scholarships will be reinstated before the first day of school.
