Cedar International School believes that quality education should be accessible to as many families as possible. Cedar therefore offers a limited amount of financial aid, based on need, to those families unable to afford full tuition fees. The cost of financial aid is currently underwritten by the school, and therefore a maximum amount of funds can be allocated in any fiscal year, as set by the Board of Trustees as part of the annual school budget. Applications are reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee, consisting of two Board members, the School Director, and the school’s Accounts Manager, who keep the information in the strictest of confidence.
Cedar considers that it is the responsibility of the parent(s) or guardian(s) of students to set their children’s education at a high priority. Therefore when assessing financial need, the financial aid committee will consider how parents prioritise essential and non-essential expenses. Space available in the grade may also impact award allocation. All awards are made for a single academic year, and are contingent on the student remaining in academic, behavioural, and financial good standing. Applications must be re-submitted each academic year or whenever family circumstances change that may impact the need for aid.
