REFUND POLICY

In the event that a student authorization cannot be obtained, or the student decides not to attend or withdraws from the school, the following refund policy will apply:

Refund of fees, excluding application fee, will be given only if the student visa is not approved. An original copy of rejection letter from the embassy is required.  If the student withdraws within 30 days of the start of class, 50% of the tuition fee only is refundable. No refunds if the student withdraws 30 days or more from the start of class. 

If the student is applying for immigration status, the school must receive legal documentation by June 30 of the previous school year in order to qualify for the regular tuition rates. If a student becomes a landed immigrant after June 30 of the previous school year the full international student tuition rate applies; however, a refund will be issued in the amount of the government grant that the school will receive for that student. 

SCHOOL BUS

BUS FEES AND REGISTRATION
Our school provides school bus service when and where possible. The bus system is operated by a separate organization which aims to accommodate all requests from families for bus service. However, we cannot guarantee that a school bus will be available in your area on a route that meets your needs. Your child may need to be driven to a stop closest to your home on an existing route.
The student will require school bus transportation *
If yes
I understand and acknowledge that the school must receive notice of school bus cancellation by Sept. 30. After Sept. 30 I will be charged for the full year regardless of whether we are using the service. (If your child is not registered to take the bus please click Yes anyway to indicate you understand the policy should you decide to use bus service later.)* *
