Financial Aid for Bowie Day School

Bowie Day School 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 the Financial Aid Committee who makes recommendations to the Headmaster based on next year’s budget. Upon approval by the Headmaster, financial aid offers are then sent to families.

Your student MUST be accepted to Bowie Day School before you start this application. *Financial Aid is not given to first year applicants.*

As a reminder, you must reapply each year. To start the process, please do the following:

  • Click on the “FAST” Logo below.
  • Click ‘Start Application’ to begin.

  • 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). Please do not call the school with questions.

  • The charge for the application is $45.00 and to be paid by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) after all sections have been completed.

  • After completing the online application you will be required to scan or mail your tax documents (Federal taxes including all schedules and W-2’s) to FAST for verification purposes:
