The information below applies to the 2016-2017 school year. For more details download the 2016-2017 Student Fee Schedule.
Methods of payment
Various methods of payment are accepted including cheque, VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Online Bill Payment. An installment plan is also offered.
In order to reserve a place for students, the School requires that a non-refundable payment of $3,500 be paid upon acceptance. This payment will serve as the Membership Fee required for each new student enrolled in the School and will not be applied towards tuition.
All students wear a School uniform. It can be purchased at Beatties in Calgary (403-252 -9342). The School also has a consignment clothing store called Tweeds and More (403-938-9126) run by parent volunteers. Tweeds and More sells quality, gently used uniform items. A percentage of the consignment sales goes back to the School.
Costs for students’ uniforms vary depending on individual needs. The initial costs range from $800 to $1,000, though many of those items will last for two to three years. In subsequent years, the uniform costs are minimal.
All families must pay a mandatory $500 transportation fee. This fee helps to cover the cost of transportation to and from many off-campus activities. In addition, the School provides a daily early and late bus service from and to Calgary for those students who need to be at the School before and after normal bus departure times. Transportation to non-school activities is the responsibility of parents.
First Student Canada provides bus service to Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School. The fee for this service is $2,570. Students who plan to use the bus must send a deposit on or before June 1 each year. Before the school year begins, a bus schedule will be distributed to each family who has committed to using the bus. Occasional busing is available to other students only if a seat is still available.
Our technology immersion program begins in Grade 6. Students in Grades 6 to 9 are required to rent a School prescribed notebook computer for their personal use. The cost of renting the notebook is $620 per school year.
Senior School students (Grades 10-12) are required to bring their own device.
