Tuition for the 2016-17 school year (September to June) is $7000 CAD for students whose parents can provide evidence of normal residency in BC. There are a few ways that tuition can paid: (please also see note about laptop purchase below)
1. Lump sum (before July 1)
• If paying in a lump sum, you will receive a discount of 5%, reducing tuition to $6650 (less $100 deposit where that has been paid separately). Cheque can be made payable to “Pacific School of Innovation and Inquiry.”
2. Twelve month (July 2016 to June 2017)
• Post-dated cheques are required before July 1, 2016 to ensure payment on the first of each month from July 1, 2016 to June 1, 2017. Each payment will be $575, assuming that the $100 deposit has been received. In cases where no deposit has been received before payments begin, monthly payments will be $583.33. Cheques can be made payable to “Pacific School of Innovation and Inquiry.”
3. Ten month (September 2016 to June 2017; for later registrants)
• Only in cases where enrollment is not confirmed until after July 1, 2016, ten monthly payments can be made from September 1, 2016 to June 1, 2017. Each payment will be $690, assuming the $100 deposit has been received. In cases where no deposit has been received before payments begin, monthly payments will be $700. Cheques can be made payable to “Pacific School of Innovation and Inquiry.”
Sibling Enrollment Discount
In cases where siblings are concurrently enrolled, PSII offers a 15% discount on the second sibling’s tuition (i.e. the second sibling’s tuition amount would be $5950 when making monthly payments ($495.83 per month if paying over 12 months), or $5652.50 if making a single lump sum payment.
International student fees are dependent on a number of factors and require a conversation with the school’s principal educator.
Tuition includes a two-year renewable laptop that the student owns and can keep. The school will purchase a new one every two years, regardless of the condition of the original one. The school will buy a laptop that meets or exceeds the minimum requirements for what is needed to participate in the school program (at least 8 GB RAM, Windows operating system, wi-fi capable, minimum Intel i3 or equivalent, minimum 1TB lard drive).
If a learner knows that they will be using a laptop for a purpose that would require much higher specifications, the family can reduce tuition by $300 in any one year and purchase their own laptop. Please check with Jeff before doing this, just to make sure it is really necessary, and to make sure that the computer can do what it needs to.
