It is our intention to minimize costs that parents / families face. We feel that any student should be able to attend school without incurring any additional costs.
Depending on the program choices that students and their families make, there may be costs from time to time. For example:
Student in progams like Metals or Woods or Art may complete the program without additional costs. However, some may choose to take on more elaborate projects, and are responsible for additional costs.
Students in Home Ec / Clothing, Housing and Design may be charged a small materials fee. Students get to keep their personal project and need to pay for the materials, typically around $20 for the average project. Students may be charged for materials used in goods that are intended for the student to take home for personal use
Students in the Band program may face instrument rental charges. Rental agreements are typically established between parents and private companies such as Long and McQuade or St. John's Music. The school is not a party to these rental agreements.
Students must pay fees for instruments they may rent from the school.
Extra Curricular and Field Trips
Sports and tournament fees are covered by the school as much as possible. Costs associated with travel and tournaments - meals and accomodation for example - are beyond the school's responsibility. Additional sports fees may arise from time to time should teams participate in additional tournaments
From time to time, fees may be charged for field trips, team trips or special events to recover actual expenses, including transportation, accommodation, meals, entrance fees and equipment rental
Students pay for and keep their own sports uniforms, though we do have some that can be loaned to those who do not wish to purchase their own uniform.
Anything for which the student / family receives value and is optional is not considered a fee - for example, student photos, school clothing, etc..
