Financial Assistance

Admission to our school is merit-based and no Singaporean admitted to ACS (Independent) will be turned away because he / she cannot afford school fees.

Our school has various financial assistance programmes in place. Should you require assistance with school fees, please approach our Deputy Principal, Mr Patrick Soo (patrick@acsindep.edu.sg) or School Secretary, Ms Eunice Seah (Tel: 6870 0314).

MOE INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS BURSARY

Singapore Citizens in independent schools may apply for assistance under the MOE ISB scheme.

Application for MOE ISB

Application forms are available from the Front Office and Parent’s Portal. Please ensure that the ISB application is accompanied by all relevant documents required by MOE. You may refer to the Checklist annexed for documents required.

Omission may result in a delay in the processing of the application and in turn, a delay in the awarding of the ISB.  Students should pay the full amount of school fees until their application for the ISB has been processed and have received written advice from the School. Applications may be made throughout the year as exigencies of each family’s financial situation demand.  However, each MOE ISB award is effective from the month the application is approved and may not be back-dated.

Income Limits & Benefits

The student needs only satisfy either the Gross Household Income (GHI) or the Per Capita Income (PCI) criterion. PCI is computed based on the GHI divided by the number of members in the household. Approved ISBs are valid till December of the year. Fresh applications will have to be submitted for each academic year.
