Fees and Waivers

Payment

Students at Louise Dean School will not be denied access to programs based on fee payment.  If you have challenges paying the fees or bussing, please ensure that the school knows. With the support of social workers, it is often possible to apply for a ‘fee’ and a ‘transportation’ waiver. This means that you would not be responsible to pay the fees.  Proof of income is required for this.

If you are able to pay the fees, but not all at once, a payment schedule can be set up. The school accepts cash or cheques.  If the cheque is returned NSF (not sufficient funds), a charge of $20.00 is applied to cover the cost of processing.

For students who are receiving the Learner’s Bursary, school fees are fully covered. For students who are on the Bridging Program of the Learner’s Bursary, fee payment is delayed until the student has more secure funding.
