Financial Assistance

We understand that, at times, household financial situations change and additional stresses can come to bear on a family’s ability to pay tuition at PCS. As a school, we strive to offer as much financial support as we can. In fact, many of our existing and alumni families regularly donate to help those who need it most.

In order for us to allocate financial assistance resources wisely and fairly, we enlist the help of Independent School Management’s FAST (Financial Assistance for School Tuition) program. FAST provides an independent needs-based financial assistance analysis service which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. FAST’s recommendations are then reviewed by the school’s Financial Assistance Team who in turn make financial award decisions based on the school’s annual Tuition Assistance budget.

This document outlines the process of applying for financial assistance. If you have questions while completing the application process, please call FAST directly at 1-877-326-3278.  To be eligible to apply for tuition assistance, you must be an existing or newly accepted PCS family. Note that a fee of $53 US dollars is charged by FAST to process your application (via online credit card payment).

We are currently accepting tuition assistance applications for the 2024/2025 school year. To begin the application process with FAST, please click here.

Most financial award decisions for the 2024/2025 school year will be made by the end of March 2024 for current PCS families and the end of April 2024 for new families. Accordingly, applications should be submitted as soon as possible.

All FAST applications are handled in a secure confidential manner. While the data is held in Canada on Canadian servers, it is reviewed by FAST in the United States. All Canadian data privacy laws will be respected.
