Once the admissions process is complete, parents/guardians may apply for financial aid by obtaining a Financial Aid Packet from the Admissions Office and submitting their application via FAST (see below). The Financial Aid Committee reviews all applications and allocates grants. All aid decisions are based on financial need. If the aid grant is deemed insufficient for the student to attend the school by the family, and all deadlines have been met, the registration deposit will be refunded.

The Application Process

The Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) program provides a need-based financial aid analysis service that includes an income verification process. All information from FAST remains confidential and is reviewed by the school. You must apply for financial aid each year, using the online FAST application. After applying, you will mail tax documents to FAST for income verification purposes.

On the application, please use your name as it appears on your tax return. The online application process is self-guided. You can partially complete an application and go back to it another time if you do not want to complete the application in one sitting. Please click the link below to start or resume your FAST application:

If you have any questions about the application process, please call the FAST Call Center at 1-877-326-FAST (3278), open 24/7.

The non-refundable application fee is $43, payable by Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. The application fee will be billed to your credit card under the name of “Independent School Management (ISM)”, the company which provides the FAST application service.

If you are applying to other schools that uses FAST for financial aid, the second application will cost $10. You will receive a PIN and personalized link to the second application by e-mail. You must use the PIN and link in the e-mail to apply to each additional school at a reduced rate of $10. Please contact the FAST Call Center at 877-326-FAST (3278) if you need any assistance in applying to multiple schools.
