Discovery School Tuition
Every spring our Board of Directors establishes tuition fees that support the financial stability and sustainability of the school. Tuition fees are the portion of educational costs not covered by the 50% Funding Grant from the Ministry or the Special Education Grant we receive for each student.
The tuition fee for 2016-17 is $7,350 for students in Grades 1-8 and $7,500 for those in Grades 9-12. Parents provide a deposit at the time of registration (March) and in September can either pay the tuition in full, or with 10 OR 12 post-dated monthly cheques.
As well as the school tuition fee, parents are responsible for bus fares, swimming lessons (approximately $30.00 per course of 10 lessons) and Camp or other year-end activities ($50.00). These activities are part of our Outdoor Education and P.E. courses, and are considered necessary curriculum/programs for all students. Parents also pay a portion of the cost of field trips; the remaining cost is subsidized by the school. Parents ensure educational psychological reports remain current.
