Tuition

St. Paul's High School strives to balance offering affordable tuition while providing excellence in education. 

Tuition for the current 2021-2022 academic year is $8,700. The full cost of educating a student at St. Paul’s High School is provided by a combination of tuition, a per-student government grant, and various fundraising efforts. Tuition is set in mid-March by our Board of Directors. International students are charged, the full cost of educating a student at St. Paul's High School. Please contact our Admissions Office for more information.

There are three payment options for tuition:

  1. One Payment 

  2. Monthly Payments

  3. Financial Aid / Bursary Application (upon your son's acceptance to St. Paul's families can request a Bursary Application).

Tax Deductions

As per Canada Revenue Agency guidelines, a portion of tuition is considered a charitable donation. The exact amount of the charitable receipt varies from year to year based on the audited financial statements of the previous year. Thus, your first receipt will be dated Dec. 31 of the calendar year in which your son completes his first year. Your final receipt will be dated Dec. 31 of the year in which your son graduates. 

Fundraising

Fundraising plays an important role in the financial well-being of St. Paul's High School. The success of our fundraising efforts has an impact in determining our annual tuition fee and in the calculation that determines how much of the tuition fee is receipted for tax purposes. Our expectation is that all parents will participate in our fundraising efforts with the gift of both their time and financial resources, in every respect according to their means.

Financial Aid

St. Paul's High School strives to ensure that all qualified applicants who are accepted can attend regardless of their ability to pay tuition.

Full and partial bursaries are available to any student, based on financial need, as determined by our Bursary Committee. The bursary application process begins after the school has accepted a student. St. Paul's High School does not offer entrance scholarships. The Bursary Fund is available to families who demonstrate a financial need. For additional information, contact Ms. Tasha Lagasse, (204) 831-2312.

Bursary Application Process

This year St. Paul’s High School will utilize the online service of ISM's Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process applications. FAST will be the standard submission format for all applications.

FAST does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give, that decision occurs through our school-based process. All information from FAST is kept confidential. Bursary applications are reviewed by the President and the decision letters are then sent to families.
