Registration and Fees
Students applying to Calvary Christian School will be admitted on the condition that they are capable of maintaining standards as set forth by the school. Admission privilege rests with the administration of the School. Students and parent/guardians alike must understand that it is a privilege for the student to attend Calvary Christian School. Students and parent/guardians must be willing to conform to the standards and philosophy of the school. Failure to continue in right attitude or conduct will constitute grounds for dismissal.
Parents wishing to enrol their children should complete a registration form available from the school office. The principal and the teachers will review all applications. The school welcomes the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns parents may have.
Fundraising is an important part of our school budget. Fundraising enables us to purchase equipment and items for the school. Family participation is expected so it is fair and equitable. The school offers a “limited participation payment”. This payment is a donation to the school that covers a of a family’s portion of the fundraising budget. This can be discussed with the administration.
Calvary Christian School is a non-profit registered charitable organization. All money donations are fully receiptable. Receipts can also be given for “gifts in kind.” i.e. if an item is donated to the school the value of the item is receiptable. Note: a fair value must be allocated to used items. The school board/administration reserves the right to review all donations and accept or reject them at its discretion.
We issue childcare receipts for the full tuition amount of children under the age of six, (primarily kindergarten students.)
We issue receipts for the religious portion of our instruction based on the tuition fee minus secular cost per student.
