We have information on our website that covers scholarships and financial aid:
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
We also have information on private school tax deductions and credits which may be useful: http://www.ourkids.net/private-school-tax-deductions.php or some other tips for paying for private school that may be options: http://www.ourkids.net/school/pay-for-private-school-18-tips.php
Overall, many schools are willing to working with you 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 what they might be able to offer in terms of financial aid.
Attending any of the upcoming 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.
How do I determine the schools accreditation, and will my sons credits/diploma be recognized?
My name is Paula. My son is in grade 4 at Thor College in Cookstown-ON. They are registered with the Ontario ministry as elementary/secondary, academic, broad-based curriculum. I just found out that they offer no credits towards Ontario secondary school diploma by the ministry of education. How does this affect my child's future towards his diploma and applying for universities or college. They are not a member of any association, but the teachers are in good standing.
