Question and Answers for Tuition / Financial Aid / Scholarships & bursaries / Tax Savings


question 1. School fee policy 2. Teaching philosophy 3. Health/cleanliness policies 4. Food preparation/menus

To start, each school’s tuition varies depending on a number of factors including where it’s located and what type of school it is (ex: traditional or boarding). Many private schools are willing to working with parents and offer scholarships or other payment options in order to help cover the costs, so it's a good idea to contact the school(s) of your choice directly to ask about their fee structure and what they might be able to offer in terms of financial aid. This is also a good opportunity to ask about the school’s teaching philosophy, health policies and food preparation. Scheduling a tour of the school is an excellent way to get an idea of the environment, visit with teachers and staff and ask more questions as well. We have more information on different school philosophies on our school types page here: http://www.ourkids.net/school/types-of-schools.php We have a few different articles discussing private school tuition and tips on ways to pay for private school tuition here: Private School Tuition Overview: http://ourkids.net/school/private-school-tuition.php Paying for Private School 18 Tips: http://www.ourkids.net/school/pay-for-private-school-18-tips.php Finding the funds to help pay for private school: http://www.ourkids.net/school/finding-the-funds Resources to help pay for private school: http://www.ourkids.net/blog/resources-to-help-pay-private-school-22369/ Information on private school grants and bursaries, including requirements and a search tool for financial aid and scholarships: http://www.ourkids.net/private-school-grants.php Private school scholarships: http://www.ourkids.net/private-school-scholarships.php You may like to use our Advanced Search feature that allows you search more specifically for schools based on criteria that's most important to you and additional program types: http://www.ourkids.net/school/school-search.php Attending any of the Private School Expos is also an excellent opportunity to sit in on information seminars and speak with schools face to face: http://www.ourkids.net/expo/ - many families find this a valuable resource to helping narrow down their school choices and answering their questions.

  • ask a questionMy son attends a private Montessori school where the teacher seems to have undergone a drastic attitude shift (and not for the better) since last year. I have already paid for the year in advance which is non-refundable and when you try to talk to her about concerns with regards to my son and how he's coming home from school, she gets extremely defensive, rather hostile and deflects the matter as if she has nothing to do with it. ( ie. I don't think its appropriate she leave the children alone while she goes for a smoke - she doesn't think its any of my business) Do Montessori schools get inspected each year? If so, by who? What do yo recommend? Talking to her seems to only be escalating her behaviour.
