Families seeking financial aid must file an application through the Independent School Management Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) Program in Wilmington, DE. Our already established deadline of August 2016 remains in effect. We have changed to the FAST program because it is designed to be very responsive to our families. It is more flexible in terms of the information it will accommodate, thus allowing families to represent their own particular circumstances more accurately. To ease the online application process, FAST provides 24/7 help desk support.
Like the system we used in the past, FAST provides Gloria Deo Academy a need-based financial aid analysis service which ensures that our process for establishing financial need adheres to nationally established standards of best practice.
Financial Aid grants are made for one year only and, therefore, you must reapply each year. To start the process you may click here now.
The application process is self-guided. You may navigate in and out of the program, allowing you to partially complete an application and go back to it at another time. Online e-mail and a 24/7 helpline is provided. The charge for the application is $38.00, to be paid by credit card at the end of the session.
After completing the online application, you will be required to mail your 2014 Tax returns for both State and Federal taxes with all schedules and W-2's to:
1316 North Union Street
Wilmington DE 19806-2594
Including the School's name on the outside of the envelope will ensure faster processing of your application.
Financial Aid notification for returning students will be August 2016. Our goal is to have an award determination made by the time re-enrollment contracts are issued. Because financial aid funds are limited and demand is high, late filing of materials may result in non-renewal of a financial aid grant.
We look forward to working with you on your child's education at Gloria Deo Academy.
