Tuition Grid (2020-2021)

Monthly Tuition based on a 10-month school year

Grade 1st Child 2nd Child 3rd Child
K3 – Junior Kindergarten for 3 year-olds $309 $309 $309
K4 – Junior Kindergarten for 4 year-olds $408 $408 $408
Kindergarten-G5 (PYP – Primary Years Programme ) $805 $577 $424
G6-G10 (MYP – Middle Years Programme) $904 $655 $488
G11-G12 (DP – Diploma Programme) $970 $719 $551

  • The total amount (school fees and tuition) includes all mandatory fees (retreats, field trips, music trips up to G8, G5 music rentals, IB exams and basic grad fees), and it does not include optional fees (music trips G9 and above, G6 and above music rentals, athletic fees, skiing, MSL trips and extra optional grad fees).
  • The average overall increase from last year is 5%.
  • Tuition is grouped by IB Programme instead of a “per grade” amount:
  • – PYP – Kindergarten through Grade 5
    – MYP – Grade 6 through Grade 10
    – DP – Grade 11 and Grade 12
  • The maximum tuition per family is $1,874 (per month) for Kindergarten to Grade 12 students. The Junior Kindergarten program (K3 & K4) is a separate program and is therefore not subject to the fee maximum.
  • A portion of your tuition paid for Kindergarten through grade 12 is treated as a donation by CRA (Canadian Revenue Authorities).  A complex formula approved by CRA is applied against your paid amount and WRCA issues a donation receipt for this.  We expect the percentage of tuition paid that will be accepted by CRA as a donation to be around 75-80% of the total amount paid.  If a multi-child discount has been given, the percentage will decrease with each additional child you have enrolled.

    A child care receipt is also issued for Junior Kindergarten tuition.

    All other donations made to WRCA will be issued a tax receipt.

    Donation receipts are issued by the end of February each year.

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.
