Financial Assistance

Deadlines for Applications

New Students: March 1 , 2022
Returning Students: December 1, 2021

Application for financial assistance is made to a third party assessor, Apple Financial Services, who makes a recommendation to the Rosedale Day School’s Financial Assistance Committee. The application for financial assistance is separate from the admissions application and must be completed on the Apple Financial Services website. A family’s application for financial assistance is reviewed and evaluated independently from the admission application.

Bursaries are granted on an annual basis; therefore an application must be submitted each year.

Financial assistance is awarded as a reduction of fees, not as cash.
