Financial assistance is available to students in Grades 7 through 12 based on academic merit and financial need. In order to be eligible for financial aid, students must first submit a completed application to the College as well as a completed financial aid application to Apple Financial Services (FACS)
or Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST)
. Applicants are encouraged to apply early, ideally by February 1 to receive full consideration.
The College makes every effort to meet the needs of families applying to the school however it should be noted that awards normally do not exceed 50% of tuition fees. The average financial aid award is 25% of tuition fees.
Financial assistance awards are based upon two criteria. The principal factor is the family’s financial situation and need for assistance as determined through a completed application through FACS or FAST. The second determinant is the applicant’s assessed overall merit: his/her current or potential contribution to the Stanstead College community as determined through the completed application to the College (including references, personal or telephone interview, admissions test and academic reports, community involvement, school involvement, extra-curricular activities, etc.).
Financial Aid awards are normally offered for one academic year and are renewable annually provided the student has maintained a strong academic average, with no major disciplinary issues, and has remained active within the College community.
NOTE: Parents and students of families receiving financial assistance will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement on acceptance before the start of the academic year. This agreement will be strictly enforced.
