Financial Assistance

We believe in the importance of your child’s future, and do not want potential students who would thrive at Brentwood to feel held back by financial circumstances. Financial aid is a possibility for prospective families that cannot afford the full cost of an education at Brentwood.

Financial Assistance Application Process

Brentwood College School participates in the Financial Assistance for Canadian Students (FACS) program, operated by Apple Financial Services. We recommend reviewing the Apple Financial FAQ and Instructions - Before Applying before starting the online application. Please note that it can take up to two weeks for Apple Financial Services to receive and process your application. New students should submit their application for financial assistance when they submit their application to the School.

  • File one application per household regardless of the number of students, unless you are separated or divorced (see section 22 on page 3 of the FACS form)

  • Brentwood College School (not Apple Financial Services) will notify you of the award decision by mail when all the applications have been processed

  • Apple Financial Services only recommends the amount of the tuition adjustment awarded. The Brentwood Financial Assistance Committee makes the final decision

Payment Methods

Bank Draft or Personal Cheque: Cheques and drafts should be made payable to ‘Brentwood College School’. Payments received in US funds will be exchanged to Canadian funds using the rate on the date your payment is deposited.

Withdrawal Policy


Withdrawal By Family

When a family makes the decision to withdraw their son or daughter, 50% of the remainder of the academic year’s tuition will be refunded. The date used to calculate the refund will be the date the School receives official notice from the parent that they are withdrawing their child. If the official notice of withdrawal is accompanied by a note from a legally qualified physician, Brentwood—at its discretion—may consider refunding additional portions of the remainder of the academic year’s tuition.

Dismissal By Brentwood

In the event that the School makes the decision to dismiss a student during the year, 50% of the remainder of the academic year’s tuition may, at the School’s discretion, be refunded. The date used to calculate the refund will be the date the School gives notice to the family of the decision to dismiss the student.

Withdrawal Due To Travel Restriction

The Canadian Federal Government requires students who are not Canadian to obtain a study permit while studying in Canada. If an application for a study permit is not approved, or a student is not able to travel due to a Government travel restriction and the family notifies the School prior to August 1 of that academic year, the full tuition and registration fee for that year will be refunded in full.
