Fees & Waivers

School Fees

Schools establish all fees for the following school year prior to the end of June. Current school fees are posted on each school’s website; navigate to the "Our School" section of the school website to find the link to the School Fees.

Payment: Invoices for fees will be electronically distributed at the end of September. Parents are encouraged to pay school fees using SchoolCash Online. Please use these instructions to register.

Optional Course Waivers & Refunds: Every school has a waiver and refund process. Once your school’s principal receives Administrative Form 5105-A Waiver Application, parents/guardians of students who provide a copy of Goods and Services Tax (GST) credit notice with the names of dependent children listed will qualify to have their fees waived. Waivers only apply to school-established optional course fees. The deadline to submit the form to your school principal is June 30 of the current school year. School principals are responsible for the establishment of a refund procedure for students who are enrolled for a portion of the school year.
