Florida Prepaid Enrollment Open Until Feb. 29th

Join the more than one million families who have given the gift of college with Florida Prepaid

No matter how many toys, clothes, electronic gadgets and other gifts your child had on the “wish list” last holiday season, odds are that list was missing what could be the most important gift of all: A college savings account.

What if the gift of a college education could be had for just $53 a month for the next 18 holiday seasons? That’s about how much it would cost to purchase a 2-Year Florida College Plan for a newborn. And unlike the latest Fisher Price toy or video game, the gift of a college education is lasting and generates a lifetime of benefits and financial advantages.

  • According to a study by Georgetown University, an individual with a bachelor’s degree can earn up to $1.6 million more over their lifetime than someone with only a high school diploma.
  • According to Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, it is estimated that two-thirds of job openings will require postsecondary education within the next five years.

By giving your child a college savings account as a gift, you are sending a very clear and important message: We expect you to go to college, and we are committed to saving for that goal. That expectation will serve as a backdrop throughout their K-12 schooling – a constant whispering reminder of why their homework, study periods and test performance matters.
