"A school such as Appleby is a privilege to attend, but that doesn't necessarily mean that only the privileged should experience it."
"Now that I have the means to do so, I feel that it is my duty, and not only my pleasure, to contribute financially to the school so that others may benefit from Appleby and achieve their own leadership roles and goals in life." - Christopher Wood '78
"At the heart of Appleby's DNA - providing opportunity."
"Having the student financial assistance programme has made this all possible."
"I've also made a commitment to give back to Appleby's Financial Assistance programme so that I can pay it forward to future generations of Appleby students."
"Appleby had a life-changing impact on me and without financial assistance, I simply wouldn't have been able to attend."
"It's because of the opportunities and experiences that I have had at Appleby that I believe that I can do anything I set my mind to."
Appleby College's commitment to Financial Assistance is designed to ensure that students can pursue such an outstanding education. An Appleby education requires a significant commitment and we believe financial need should never prevent a student from reaching their full potential.
A world-class education not only requires exceptional faculty, programmes, and facilities, it also demands a diverse socioeconomic student body. Having a talented range of students, regardless of their backgrounds, is one of the central hallmarks of great schools and it's a vital part of the Appleby College experience.
All Financial Assistance decisions at Appleby are need-based and are designed to assist families who believe in an Appleby education but are unable to meet the full financial commitments.
"I was able to attend Appleby because of past donors. My donations now help other bright and hardworking students succeed a Appleby, so I am happy to do it." - Derek Smith '93
