The answer to this question depends upon the circumstances existing during the marriage.

In Wilson v. Wilson, 559 So.2d 698, 700 (Fla. 1st DC 1990), it was stated that the court may order a non custodial parent to pay for private education expense if it finds that” the parent has the ability to pay for private school” and the “expenses are in accordance with the family’s customary standard of living and are in the child’s best interest.”
