Affording SJK

Financial Assistance Program

SJK is committed to ensuring access to students of merit regardless of means.

However, as a not-for-profit, fee-dependent school, our financial resources are limited. The Financial Assistance Program offers partial funding to new and returning students.

To qualify, interested students must excel in academics, embrace the School's programmes, mission and values, and clearly demonstrate financial need. Financial Assistance applicants must complete an independent financial assessment through Apple Financial Services. Recommendations by Apple Financial Services are not a guarantee of Financial Assistance.

Please note: Assessments are required on an annual basis for returning families. New students must apply for admission and be accepted prior to submitting an application for Financial Assistance.

Students receiving Financial Assistance are expected to abide by all school policies and families agree to pay the costs related to fees and additional expenses less the value of the Financial Assistance awarded.

Returning student awards will be prioritized: new student awards will be distributed after February 1.
