Bursaries & Scholarships
Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12/PG Applicants
Albert College is a member of the Financial Aid for Canadian Students (FACS) program. Families with children enrolling into Junior Kindergarten through to Grade 12/PG are welcome to apply for financial aid in the form of a bursary. Bursaries are awarded by the school after parents complete a confidential application through Apple Financial Services. Albert College then receives an analysis of the applicant’s financial ability to contribute towards educational expenses.
The Apple Service Financial recommendation is reviewed by the Albert College Financial Aid Committee. Bursaries carry no obligation of repayment and will be renewable provided the student remains in good standing. However, families must reapply annually to demonstrate ongoing need. Bursaries are funded by donations from alumni, individuals, foundations and the school’s Endowment Fund. These funds ensure Albert College is accessible for more mission-appropriate students, regardless of their families’ financial situation.
How to apply for a bursary:
Families must complete the online Parents' Financial Statement (PFS), which is available at Apple Financial Services. Completed forms, including a non-refundable application fee of $115 are submitted online to Apple Financial Services for analysis to determine need prior to consideration by the Albert College Financial Aid Committee. Renewal applications for students currently receiving financial aid must be completed annually and submitted to Apple Financial Services for review by January 30 each year. Applications for new families enrolling after this date will be accepted and considered.
Financial Aid Committee Decisions:
The PFS and the FACS Needs Analysis are reviewed by the Albert College Financial Aid Committee. The school’s financial aid budget does not meet the needs of all applicants. The Financial Aid Committee distributes awards as broadly as possible to students in need. The school holds this information in strictest confidence and families are asked to do the same with all awards. Notice of assistance is made as soon as possible after January 30 annually. Please note that families are considered for aid only if the previous school year fees have been paid in full.
Grade 7 to 12/PG Applicants
Each year several Albert College scholarships are available to students entering Grades 7 through 12/PG, including current Grade 6 students entering our Middle School. They are awarded on the basis of merit and achievement as established by Albert College or the donor who established the specific Scholarship Fund.
Scholarships are renewable each year, provided the student remains in good academic standing, participates in school life and meets all other requirements of the school. The scholarship application deadline for prospective students is January 30 annually. Subsequent applications will be considered on an individual basis and announced accordingly. Scholarship recipients are also eligible for bursary assistance if the amount of the scholarship is insufficient to enable them to attend the school.
How to apply for a scholarship:
In addition to completing the requirements of the Albert College Application process and submitting the application fee, prospective students must submit an Albert College Scholarship Form.
Financial Aid Committee Decisions:
The Scholarship applications are reviewed by the Albert College Financial Aid Committee. The school’s financial aid budget does not meet the needs of all the applicants. The Financial Aid Committee utilizes a rubric that includes Albert’s 5 ‘A’s (Academics, Arts, Athletics, Active Citizenship and Adventure) to determine award recipients. Scholarships are distributed as broadly as possible to the most deserving students. The school holds this information in strictest confidence and families are asked to do the same with all awards. Notice of assistance is made as soon as possible after January 30 annually. Families are considered for aid only if the previous school year fees have been paid in full.
