Tuition Assistance

Richland Academy / Tuition Assistance

Richland Academy is pleased to offer a Tuition Assistance Fund, which serves to offer financial aid to our families. The program allows us to maintain a diversity of students and families in its community by providing financial assistance to those who can demonstrate financial need.  Please note that the Tuition Assistance Fund is available to families with students entering Grade 1 to 8 at Richland Academy.

Application Procedure

Families interested in applying for tuition assistance may apply with Apple Financial Services who will assess financial need and recommend an appropriate tuition assistance amount.  Apple Financial Services has been providing financial assistance analysis to private schools across Canada since 1993.  They provide schools with an unbiased evaluation of the applicant’s financial resources and ability to fund their children’s private education.

Applying families pay a fee of $90.00 directly to Apple Financial Services to cover the cost of processing their tuition assistance application. To obtain additional information and to download an application, please visit:  or call 416-730-9900.

An independent third party will review the recommendations made by Apple Financial Services and determine the tuition assistance funding amount to be awarded.  Please note that the decision of the independent third party is confidential and final.

How to Apply for Tuition Assistance

  1. Register for a New Account with Apple Financial Services online and follow the instructions on the website.  The Apple Application Fee can be paid by credit card and required support documentation will be shared exclusively with Apple Financial staff.  Richland Academy staff will not have access to any of your confidential financial documents or information at any time.  The average length of time to process an application at Apple Financial Services is 2-3 weeks.
  2. At the same time, Apply to Richland Academy, following the school’s standard Admissions procedure.  Please notify Richland Admissions office that you are applying separately tuition assistance, so we know to expect a recommendation from Apple Financial.  Please note that the Richland’s Application Fee of $250 is non-refundable, regardless of the recommendation we receive from Apple Financial or the final decision of the independent third party.
