Almaden Country School is pleased to be able to offer tuition assistance. In fulfillment of its mission of discovering the gifts in every child, our financial aid program is available for children who would otherwise not be able to attend ACS.
Financial Aid Process
- Almaden Country School uses FAST to collect information and pre-qualify families. This process costs $38 per application and can be paid by credit card on the FAST website. To start the process, which does not have to be completed all at once, click
- A complete and accurate financial aid application must be submitted through FAST by February 21 to receive priority 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 financial aid resources are still available.
- If a family demonstrates financial need, the application will be reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee, who will consider the family’s commitment to the school as well as the student’s academic and behavioral standing.
- New families will be notified of their award with their admissions offer letter. Returning families will be notified of their award by mid-March.
