Notes:

  • Fourth Child is Free (Unless the fourth child is in Junior Kindergarten whereby full tuition is payable).
  • The Federal Government allows parents who choose faith-based schooling for their children to utilize a portion of their tuition fees as a charitable donation for income tax purposes.
    • This does not apply to students registered in our International Program.
    • This amount varies from year to year dependent on the cost of operating the school, the number of students attending, and the revenue received from sources other than tuition, for example, government grants.
    • The calculated cost for secular education per student attending WRCA is deducted from each student’s tuition fees paid, and the remainder qualifies as a charitable donation for tax purposes. White Rock Christian Academy estimates that the percentage of total tuition paid at WRCA that will qualify as a charitable donation for tax purposes to be between 70%-80%.
  • A child care receipt for tax purposes is issued for all Junior Kindergarten tuition.

Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Form Information

PAD forms are available here and can be submitted to the WRCA office or by email to accounts@wrca.ca.

Notes:

  • PAD forms must be submitted with a void cheque.
  • Please indicate on your completed PAD form the name(s) and grade(s) of your child(ren) attending WRCA.
  • If the Waiver of Pre-Notification section of the form is signed, there is no need to complete a new PAD form in subsequent years (when tuition changes or your family enrolls siblings in the school). If the waiver is signed, PAD withdrawals for the following year can be cancelled by written request via email to accounts@wrca.ca.
  • Even if you are paying tuition in full in advance, a pre-authorized debit form (and the void cheque) is still required which authorizes the $400 forfeit for non-completed volunteer hours in June. Simply omit the amount to withdraw section of the PAD form.
