Tuition relief starting in Kindergarten

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available to any student from Kindergarten to Grade 12 who wishes to attend Balmoral Hall School, but for whom the full tuition may not be possible for her family.

The school's financial aid program awards up to a maximum of 50% towards tuition and boarding fees.

  • Balmoral Hall works with Apple Financial Services, an external organization that evaluates the individual financial needs of families. This ensures that financial information provided is held in complete confidence.

  • Apple Financial provides a recommendation to Balmoral Hall School for each applicant which then guides the level of tuition relief offered.

  • There is no cap on the number of students who can be awarded financial aid each year.

  • Families are required to re-apply every year to ensure that the evaluation of each particular family's financial situation and resources is current.

Bursaries & scholarships

While the school's financial aid program has a maximum award of 50%, there are a number of bursaries and scholarships that are also awarded each year. These can help further reduce the overall tuition paid.

  • Once you complete an application with Apple Financial and qualify for financial aid, you are automatically considered for bursaries & scholarships.

  • Many of these bursaries & scholarships are based on students' interests, academic achievement, or other criteria, and are most often awarded to students in Senior School.

  • Please note that the Bursary Committee tends to look more favourably at families who have qualified for 50% tuition relief when allocating bursaries.

  • Bursaries & scholarships are possible thanks to the generosity of many donors who have contributed to the Balmoral Hall Endowment Fund. We are grateful for their support.
