At Deer Creek, we do not want tuition to be a barrier in our partnership with you, and we are committed to making a strong, Christ-centered education accessible to families of diverse economic backgrounds. Each year, approximately 15% of our students are awarded tuition assistance. Families may be awarded up to 25% off the cost of tuition. In a recent year, we were able to award over $23,000.00 to families who applied.
Our tuition assistance application process is designed with you in mind:
Step 1: Go to www.ismfast.com and Start an Application. The cost for the online portion of the application is $43 and is paid with a credit card to Fast Financial.
Step 2: Once you complete the online application, it will be submitted to the Head of School and the Director of Finance for review. This usually takes 24–48 hours. Please know that your application and personal information are maintained with strict confidentiality.
Step 3: Once your application has been reviewed, we will contact you to set up a time to meet with you. At that meeting we’ll discuss any questions that we have, or we’ll inform you of the amount your family will be awarded.
The entire process should take no more than four days.
