In this area the best way to find the Catholic Schools is to look up the Diocese of St. Petersburg. Here is the website: http://home.catholicweb.com/dosp_ocsc/index.cfm/NewsItem?id=142465 listing for High Schools.

I would suggest you rent in an apartment complex. Otherwise you MUST do a background check before handing any money over to an individual owner. Some advertisers on Craigslist are listing rentals they do not actually own!
So find a small apartment in a complex or if you have at least a 640 credit score and can qualify for an FHA mortgage and do not earn too much money you may be able to get up to $10k from the Florida First Time Homebuyer bond program. FHA has reduced the wait time after a bankruptcy, foreclosure or short sale to one year so if you thought you had to wait 3 or more years to qualify you may now be able to buy.
All the best,
