Question and Answers for Learning Languages / English as a second language


English eligibility, grants for private schools

We have some information on certificate of eligibility on our site here: http://www.ourkids.net/english-language-schools-montreal.php#cert as well as a list of English language schools, including a number of schools that do not require a certificate to apply. The English-language private schools in Quebec that do not require English eligibility are those that do not receive subsidization from the province of Quebec. Most elementary programs are not subsidized and therefore do not require eligibility, but many private secondary schools do receive this subsidization. We advise contacting the schools of your choice to inquire about their eligibility requirements and application process. You may also find the following additional articles helpful in regards to certificate eligibility: http://www.mels.gouv.qc.ca/en/parents-and-guardians/instruction-in-english/eligibility/ http://www.mels.gouv.qc.ca/en/parents-and-guardians/instruction-in-english/application-process/ As far as financial support for private schools, 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.
