Tuition and Fees

Innova Academy is an independent, non-profit school committed to offering quality education in the classical Christian tradition. Our school does not receive any government funding, and expenses are covered by tuition and personal donations. We strive to make our school affordable to as many families who qualify for admission to Innova Academy as possible. Please note that bursaries and scholarships are available.

Bursaries

We understand that a private education can be a significant financial undertaking for many families. Please see our Bursaries page to learn how Innova is helping to make classical Christian education accessible to more families.

Scholarships

A limited number of scholarships are available for the 2019/2020 school year. Please see our Scholarships page for more information.

Uniforms

School uniforms are mandatory. The approximate cost in the first year is $300 per student. Please see our Uniforms page for more information.

Payments

Monthly tuition payments can be made by completing the Pre-Authorized Debit Agreement (PAD) to the office by Tuesday, June 18, 2020. There will be a charge of $30 for any returned cheques or PAD payments.

New families – a non–refundable deposit of $500 is required within one week of acceptance to secure your child’s spot in his/her respective class. The deposit will be deducted from your June 2021 payment.

Tax Receipts

Although CRA allows for a donation receipt for the religious portion of tuition, Innova’s actual cost per pupil (secular cost divided by cost per pupil) is higher than our tuition rate. As a result, there is no allowable receipting under CRA’s general guidelines. As enrolment grows, receipting may be an option for us in the future.

CRA allows for childcare receipting, and we are happy to be able to offer receipts for the before and after-school program, since this is a direct form of childcare outside of our educational program. Receipts will be issued out by the end of February for the previous calendar year.
