Financial Aid

Dear Families,

Families seeking financial aid must file an application through the Independent School Management Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) Program. FAST provides Unity School a need-based financial aid analysis service which ensures that our process for establishing financial need adheres to nationally established standards of best practice.  All information from FAST is kept confidential, as is all information pertaining to a family’s financial aid request. To ease the online application process, FAST provides 24/7 help desk support.

The deadline to apply for returning students is February 1st. There is no filing deadline for new students but you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible due to limited funds. Unity School requires new and returning students to be enrolled prior to their application being processed.

Financial Aid grants are made for one year only and, therefore, you must reapply each year. Aid is available to Kindergarten – Grade 8 only.

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.  Online e-mail and a 24/7 helpline is provided.  The charge for the application is $53.00, to be paid by credit card at the end of the session.

After completing the online application, you will be required to mail your 2021 tax returns with all schedules and W-2’s to:

FAST Processing
1316 North Union Street
Wilmington DE 19806-2594

Including the School’s name on the outside of the envelope will ensure faster processing of your application.

Financial Aid notification for returning students will be February 28th. Because financial aid funds are limited, late filing of materials may result in non-renewal of a financial aid grant.

If you need more information or assistance, please contact Paul Meadows at (561) 276-4414 or

We look forward to working with you on your child’s education at Unity School.
