Financial Assistance

Branksome is proud of its ability to support students through entrance merit scholarships and a program of financial assistance (bursaries). Our philosophy is to support, in part, as many families as possible as they look to finance their Branksome experience from Grade 7 to 12.
 
Financial Assistance (Bursaries)
  • The primary responsibility for payment of all fees rests with the student’s family.
  • Branksome Hall offers financial assistance, at various levels, to students in Grade 7 to 12 who qualify for admission to the school and whose families can show evidence of financial need.
  • Application for financial assistance is made to a third party assessor (Apple Financial Services) who makes a recommendation to the Branksome Hall 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.
  • All families are advised to apply for financial assistance at their earliest convenience, as funds are limited. The deadline for returning families is late November and for new families, the deadline is early December. All decisions are made by the Branksome Hall Financial Assistance Committee and are communicated in February.
  • Academic excellence is not a requirement for the awarding of financial assistance but students are expected to maintain good academic standing and to be positive, contributing members of the school community.
  • Renewal of financial assistance is not automatic; families must re-apply annually.
  • Financial assistance is awarded as a reduction of fees, not as cash.
  • Cost of attendance (not only the tuition fee) is taken into consideration.
  • Both new and returning families from Grade 7 to 12 are eligible for financial assistance.
 
How to Apply for Financial Assistance
Interested families need to complete the Financial Aid for Canadian Students' (FACS) form, which is completed through Apple Financial Services. Applications should be made to Apple Financial by late November for returning families and by early December for new families. The application form and further information can be obtained from the Apple Financial Services website.
 
New families are also required to complete a Branksome Hall Application Form
 

Scholarships & Travel Assistance

List of 2 items.

  • Entrance Scholarships

    Entrance Merit Scholarships are available for new day and boarding students entering Grades 7 to 11. Scholarships are awarded in recognition of students' academic success and co-curricular involvement. The average award is between $1,000 and $8,500.

    To be considered for an Entrance Merit Scholarship, applicants simply check off the Scholarship Consideration box through the online application. Applicants will then be invited to participate in the Scholarship process in January. Please contact our Admissions Office for more information or call 416-920-6265 ext. 268.
  • Travel Assistance For Trips

    Recognizing the importance of travel opportunities and the financial constraints that school trips might impose, endowed bursaries, established by donors, enable our students to participate in these specialized programs. The Financial Assistance Committee meets regularly to review applications for Trip Financial Assistance.
     
    Families requesting more than $1,000 in support are asked to apply for Trip Financial Assistance by first applying to Apple Financial Services and then completing the online Travel Financial Assistance Request Form. Families requesting less than $1,000 are asked to simply complete the form.
     
    Request forms should be emailed to Assistance for Trips. All inquiries and applications remain confidential. Applications must be made at least 45 days in advance of the school trip to allow for consideration by the Financial Assistance Committee.
     
    For those families who have already completed the application to Apple Financial Services this year, the Travel Financial Assistance Request Form must be completed and submitted by email to Assistance for Trips at least 30 days in advance of the school trip.
