Student Financial Assistance

Over $2.1 million in student financial assistance is awarded annually to the new and existing families of St. Michael’s College School. This is only possible through the generosity of the Basilian Fathers, parents, alumni, and friends.

New families requiring financial assistance must apply by the application deadline to be eligible for funds in our standard admissions cycle. After this date, please contact the Office of Admissions for information on financial assistance application eligibility. Please note, the maximum amount of student financial assistance awarded for a student in Grade 7 or 8 is 50% of tuition fees.

Our Financial Assistance Programme is based on the financial need of the candidate’s family and operates through the Apple Financial Corporation’s FACS (Financial Aid for students attending Canadian Schools) Programme in conjunction with the St. Michael’s College School Financial Assistance Committee. Families must re-apply for financial assistance on an annual basis.

It is the expectation of St. Michael’s that families will bear some financial responsibility towards their son’s education. Please note that all decisions made by the Financial Assistance Committee are final.

All online student financial assistance application questions should be directed to Apple Financial Corporation. Value notifications are sent with admission offers.

Funds are limited, so please submit early to give yourself time to complete the financial assistance application and have the proper documents ready.
