Furthermore, many of Calgary's private Catholic schools themselves will assist you in funding your child's education through scholarships and bursaries. The former refers to merit-based payments that your child may earn through great marks, an extremely successful entrance examination, outstanding community involvement, or remarkable achievements in a particular area, such as arts or athletics. In contrast, bursaries are a form of financial aid that a school pays based on your needs.
