Families who withdraw after one semester without having given notice are expected to pay one tenth of the annual tuition rate beyond the end of first semester.

Tuition paid to a Christian school is considered by Revenue Canada to be made up of both tuition and donation. The donation portion of tuition when claimed upon filing personal income tax returns receives a tax refund of approximately 45%.
what other fees might I expect?
Transportation: These fees are now incorporated into the tuition schedule.
Uniforms: These can be purchased new from our supplier Land’s End online (click here). Most families look at $300/child in their first year for uniform expenses.
Other: There will be some extra costs for certain team uniforms, class trips and other incidentials. Families can choose to set up a student ledger account (payments due at end of each semester before exams) or can choose to pay as you go.
