Paying for Catholic schools in Calgary
The province of Alberta might help you reduce the expense of your child's private school education by providing schools that meet a specific criterion with provincial grants. Click here to read more about Alberta Education's private schools grant system.
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.
