SCHOOL FEES INFORMATION FOR 2017
1. 2017 SCHOOL FEES
The School Board has approved the school fees for 2017. The table below details the Tuition and Technology Levy (where appropriate) for 2017. For more information on the Technology Levy please read the High School Student Laptop Program, Frequently Asked Questions.
The tuition fees are all inclusive and are charged out monthly commencing January through October. They include the compulsory activities such as: subject costs (e.g. junior catering, woodwork); camps; excursions and textbooks.
Where students commence during an invoicing month, it is expected that the parents will pay the full fees for that month. For example, Term 3 commences around the middle of July, and parents of new students will be invoiced the full amount for the month of July.

7. TERMINATION FEE
Students departing during the school year
The school expects at least one term's notice in writing of a student's departure date. Failure to meet this obligation will most likely mean that the fees for the next term will be charged.
The decision on this payment will be at the discretion of the School Board.
Students departing at the end of the school year
The school expects notice in writing before the end of Term 3 if a student is leaving at the end of the school year. Failure to meet this obligation will most likely mean that the fees for the first term of the following year will be charged as plans for the next year will be in place by then.
