Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School TUITION AND FINANCIAL AID
Tuition is always a key concern of parents. The cost of tuition is set by individual schools, and varies widely. It is important to note that tuition does not necessarily cover all costs, and additional fees may apply for other resources or access to facilities at the school. Financial assistance of various kinds is sometimes available.
What STS says about their tuition:
Private school tuition can be prohibitive for some families. If your child is a new, ideal candidate for a Strathcona-Tweedsmuir education or a current student, we can help. We are committed to making STS accessible to as many families as possible. Last year, thanks to our donors, we distributed $535,000 to Middle and Senior School students to help with tuition.

This school works with Apple Financial Inc. for processing financial applications Need-based bursaries are offered to families who demonstrate a gap between their available income and the expected cost of a STS education. Qualification is determined by the Financial Assistance Committee in conjunction with a recommendation from Apple Financial Services. Families apply for assistance through Apple Financial’s Financial Assistance for Canadian Students (FACS) application found on their website (www.applefinancialservices.ca). Apple Financial in turn makes a recommendation for bursary directly to STS. The Financial Assistance Committee reviews each application and awards assistance in accordance with School policy.
