Victoria Private Schools

Meet with British Columbia's top ranked private schools and the best boarding schools across Canada at the Vancouver Private School Expo in November. This one day event is a must for any parent or student considering an alternative education.

Provincial Grants for Private School Tuition

B.C., in part, provides grants to many of the province's best private schools. Indeed, 85 per cent of British Columbia's private schools receive some provincial funding, which totals over $150 million in yearly spending.

There are ways to make private school affordable in British Columbia. B.C. may give you tax credits in two specific situations. First, if you send your child to a religious or faith-based school, its tuition may count as a charitable donation that you will receive a tax break for. Likewise, if you enroll your child in a school for students with special needs, you may be able to claim a medical tax benefit.

Other Ways to Pay for Private School

  • B.C.'s private schools will also help you fund your child's education through scholarships and bursaries. These grants usually have strict deadlines.
  • If you live in a community that could not adequately serve your child, local organizations, such as the Rotary Club, may help pay part of your child's tuition.
  • Many corporations allocate funds for education-based causes.
  • Learn how government support, scholarships, bursaries and other savings strategies can help you pay for private school tuition.

Searching for a Private School in Victoria

As you would in any city in British Columbia, it is best to find schools registered with the British Columbia Board of Education. You may also follow these tips:

  • Be sure to talk to a school's teachers, administrators, students and their parents.
  • Create a list of what you look for in a school. Is distance a concern for you? What is your ideal class size? What is the school's guiding educational philosophy?
  • Visit various schools. Compare and contrast different private schools in your area, especially regarding their education and facilities.
