The Purpose of Financial Aid
Financial assistance is reserved for children enrolled in P’tits Bouts and aims to:
Enable current families to continue their child’s education at P’tits Bouts.
Enable new families to join the school.
Promote the socioeconomic diversity of families in the P’tits Bouts community.
Provide students every opportunity to receive the best education possible.
Financial assistance is not a guaranteed as it is based on the final amount allocated to the fund for that year. The level of assistance provided may therefore vary from one year to the next.
Financial Aid will be granted for family with a total income under $100,000 and all financial aid request that doesn’t meet this criteria will be automatically rejected.
Financial Aid Application
The funding application is independent of your child’s enrollment at P’tits Bouts: you must therefore complete both applications. Where an application for financial assistance has been granted, you will have 2 weeks to respond with your decision. If your answer is received within 2 weeks (from the date the approval for funding was made by efgb) and you do not agree to enroll your child in the school, your $500 tuition deposit will be refunded.
Financial assistance must be renewed annually. Any application received after the submission deadline automatically rejected as will any inaccurate or incomplete reporting. The percentage of financial assistance granted will be distributed over the number of payments chosen by the family. For example, if the family choses monthly payments and is granted an aid of 50%, they will pay a monthly rate of $507.50 and not $1.015.
