“FAST” Financial Aid for School Tuition

Golden Pond School seeks to assist families in affording a quality education to the greatest extent possible. We have enlisted the help of FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition), an independent organization that analyzes a family’s finances and makes suggestions about the contributions for educational expenses.

All information received by FAST is confidential. FAST applications are submitted directly to this third-party company online through the Golden Pond School website. Financial Aid applicants must complete the FAST application by June 1st. FAST will e-mail a list of required documents, which will include your most recent tax return. Once started, the application can be saved and families can return to the website to continue as many times as necessary. FAST has a $41.00 processing fee which must be paid by credit card.

In seeking financial assistance, families should complete the following steps:

  • Submit the application and program request for admission to Golden Pond School and be formally accepted.
  • Complete the application and submit required paperwork for financial assistance online by June 1st.

Information will be processed, and the recommendation will be made to the school. Upon approval, financial aid offers are sent to families. Your award date will be based on the date Golden Pond School receives your assessment report back from FAST. Despite a strong commitment to our financial assistance program, each year the number of students who qualify for financial assistance is more than we can fully support.
