Tuition Assistance

Almaden Country Day School is pleased to be able to offer tuition assistance. In fulfillment of its mission of discovering the gifts in every child, our tuition assistance program is available for children who would otherwise not be able to attend ACDS.

Tuition Assistance Process

Almaden Country Day School uses FAST to collect information and pre-qualify families. This process costs $41 per application and can be paid by credit card on the FAST website.

After FAST makes its recommendations, the application will be reviewed by our Tuition Assistance Committee which considers the family's commitment to the school, personal circumstances, and the student's academic and behavioral standing.

To start the process, which does not have to be completed all at once, click the 'FAST' button below.

A complete and accurate financial aid application must be submitted through FAST to receive consideration. Incomplete applications, including any requested documents, will not be reviewed. Applications received after the priority deadline will be considered in the order they are received and to the extent tuition assistance resources are still available.

New families will be notified of their award with their admissions offer letter. Returning families will be notified of their award by mid-March.
