Find the Best Private School for Your Family in Montreal
If you are looking for a Montreal private school, be sure that the school is registered with the Ministère de l'Éducation (MELS or the Ministry of Education of Quebec). Get all the facts you can gather about the school’s reputation and history. Does it have any warts? What are its main strengths? What does the Ministry of Education think about it?
You can also consult the Fraser Institute report cards, which rank schools according to province and/or categories. That said, be sure to weigh the rankings against your own values and the needs of your child. You ought not to select a private school based only on external opinions. Visit many schools and ask a lot of questions!
According to Quebec’s Ministry of Education, “Quebec government grants are the main source of funding for private educational institutions.” These grants, the majority of which come from MELS, of course, reduce the cost of sending your child to private school in Quebec.
Other Sources of Funding for Private Education
Paying for private school may seem overwhelming. Indeed, beyond the tuition costs, you may also have to buy uniforms, textbooks, fieldtrips, school supplies, and even laptops. But, if you demonstrate financial need, the school itself may help you pay for some or all of these expenses through a bursary. Moreover, if your child is really gifted, he or she may be eligible for a full or partial scholarship. Our site offers much more information on financial aid for private schools. If you apply for grants or loans, you should be sure to do so early or make a note of the deadlines.
You should, furthermore, recognize that neither the province nor the school is your only funding option. In many areas, community support is available. Many corporations and charitable organizations offer grants and scholarships to assist you in meeting your child's private school expenses.
