201415 Tuition Fees
January 31, 2014
Re: 2014-15 Tuition fees
In January of each year, the Board of Directors at Vancouver College sets the tuition fees for the following school year based on the estimated revenues and operating costs for the school. The Board, at its January meeting, agreed to set tuition fees for 2014-15 at $6,950 per student, an increase of $225. This adjustment is necessary to fund the increase in operating expenses.
Families with more than one son at Vancouver College, who are in need of the Family Discount, must complete a “Request for Family Discount” form. Such discounts are not automatically given to families with multiple sons attending Vancouver College. This form is available on the school website (under Admission Procedures – Tuition and Financial Assistance) and at the main office. Please complete the form in its entirety. A meeting with the Business Manager may be required. The Family Discount for the 2014-15 school year as approved by the Board is $1,600 for the 2nd son, $3,600 for the 3rd son, and $5,650 for the 4th son.
In the tradition of Blessed Edmund Rice, the Board continues to ensure that no boy is turned away from Vancouver College because of financial reasons. The Blessed Edmund Rice Bursary Program remains available for families needing financial support to meet tuition costs. Current information about our bursary program is available on the school website (under Admission Procedures – Tuition and Financial Assistance) or you may call Kelly Lattimer, Business Manager, to discuss further.
We are indeed the fortunate beneficiaries of the legacy left behind by parents, alumni, and school supporters whose generosity has given the school a solid foundation. It is our shared responsibility to continue the commitment of our forefathers and financially support Vancouver College to maintain the enviable position it enjoys today.
We thank those families who have donated to date and ask all other families to make a gift to Vancouver College’s Annual Fund in accordance with their financial ability. Donations may be made online from the homepage of our school website or please contact Ms. Ronith Cogswell, Director of Advancement, at 604-639-2256.
On behalf of the Board, I thank you for your continued support of Vancouver College.
Chair, Board of Directors, Vancouver College
