Dear Kingdom Prep Family,
KPA utilizes the online service of ism’s Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process applications. FAST will be the standard submission format for all applications.
FAST does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential. Results are reviewed by KPA’s admissions office who makes recommendations to the Headmaster. Upon approval by the Headmaster, financial aid offers up to 50% of tuition are then sent to families.
As a reminder, you must reapply each year. To start the process, please do the following:

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. FAST has a 24/7/365 helpline available to you should you have any questions, which can be reached by calling 1-877-326-FAST (3278).
The charge for the application is $45.00 and to be paid by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) after all sections have been completed.
After completing the online application you will be required to upload your most recent tax documents (Federal taxes including all schedules, State taxes and W-2’s) to FAST for verification purposes. Or, you may mail the documents to the following address:
Independent School Management
Attn: FAST Processing Center

Wilmington, DE 19806
While no financial aid procedure can be entirely equitable – there are simply too many individual factors and extenuating circumstances – this process that has been selected serves our school community very well. Among its many features are the ability to further secure your financial data and maintain a high degree of confidentiality.
