A tuition bursary is awarded to those families who seek financial aid and demonstrate the need for assistance. The Finance Committee awards the tuition bursary, which carries with it no obligation of repayment. However, it is our hope that beneficiaries will in the future become donors to the fund, and give back to support others who need assistance.
This year we will utilize the online service of Independent School Management’s Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process bursary applications. FAST will be the standard submission format for all applications.
FAST does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential. Results are reviewed by the Financial Administrator who then passes on anonymous recommendations to the Financial Aid Committee who proposes the recommendations to the board based on next year’s budget. Upon approval by the board, financial aid offers are then sent to families.
The application process is self-guided. You may navigate in and out of the program allowing you to partially complete an application and go back to it at another time. FAST has a 24/7/365 helpline available to you should you have any technical questions, which can be reached by calling 1-877-326-FAST (2378). For any other questions, please do not hesitate to call or email Christy Wryghte: 613-968-7870 ext. 223 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The fee for the application is $45.00 USD and is refundable if your application to FAST is successful. It is to be paid by personal credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) after all sections have been completed. If you do not have a credit card, please call Jennifer Shoniker at Kingston Christian School for assistance 613-384-9572.

After completing the online application you will be required to scan or mail your most recent tax documents to:
Independent School Management
Attn: FAST Processing Center
1316 N. Union Street
Wilmington, DE 19806
You may begin the application process before you have received your notice of assessment. The deadline for applications and the submission of tax documents is May 15, 2020.
You can apply to two schools for $10 USD extra. After submitting your application, you will receive an email regarding other schools in your area who use FAST. Follow the instructions in the email and your information will be transferred to a new application with the exception of school specific questions. This will save you from completing the application twice.
