Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST)

Oneness-Family School offers tuition assistance based on financial need to current and incoming families. OFS’s Financial Aid Program is designed to provide students an opportunity for an education which might otherwise be inaccessible for them and to provide the School with a well-qualified student body reflecting economic diversity. All requests for financial aid should be made online using the Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) Program powered by Independent School Management (ISM). 

We utilize the FAST Program because OFS wants to ensure our process for establishing financial need adheres to national standards of best practice as well as having a program that is designed to be highly responsive to our families. Compared to other systems, FAST is more flexible in terms of the information it will accommodate, thus allowing families to represent their own particular circumstances more accurately.  All information from FAST is kept confidential, as is all information pertaining to a family's financial aid request.

Families applying for financial aid for the 2018-19 school year must apply no later than December 15, 2018.

Financial Aid Application Process

Step 1: Begin the FAST application online any time after December 1, 2018. (You will be redirected to the FAST site.) It may help to read these documents before starting the application.

The application fee for FAST is $45 (families will pay FAST directly).

FAST offers 24/7/365 customer support by email (help@ismfast.com) or phone (877.326.3278). 

Step 2: Mail your tax documents to FAST. For the 2018-2019 school year, please submit the following tax documents: 

  • 2017 tax returns 
  • You may also have to submit additional documents based upon the information on your FAST application.  

Once you have completed the FAST application, you will be directed to the Quick Processing Wizard and asked several questions.  After the questions have been answered you will be given a confirmation of completion form with a barcode. Put the confirmation form with the barcode and the copies of your tax documents in a sealed envelope and mail to the following address:

Independent School Management
Attn: FAST Processing
1316 North Union Street
Wilmington, DE 19806

Once FAST receives your tax documents, an email indicating that your application has been verified will be sent. 

Step 3: OFS’s Financial Aid Committee reviews the information provided to FAST and will notify family of the decision on their application.
