Affording GNS

When you join Glenlyon Norfolk School, you are investing in your child’s future, allowing them to realize their potential and create positive differences in the world. In order to ensure our school remains accessible to all students, GNS has created a number of scholarships and financial assistance opportunities. Every year the school awards more than $1,000,000 in support to 15% of GNS families that have qualified through a third-party provider (Apple Financial Services).

Financial Assistance

Needs-based financial assistance is available for eligible students and is awarded based on each family’s unique circumstances. Awards may cover up to 40% of a student’s tuition. Please note that at this time bursaries are only available to domestic day students.

The application for financial assistance is separate from the application for admission. Both must be submitted at the time of application in order to be considered for financial assistance. Candidates wishing to apply for financial assistance must complete and submit the Financial Aid for Canadian Students (FACS) application form available via the Apple Financial Services website.
