Collingwood School is committed to promoting an inclusive, socioeconomically diverse community, reflective of residents of the North Shore and the Lower Mainland.
Collingwood School offers a needs-based financial assistance program to support incoming and enrolled students in Grades 6-12 whose families complete an online application and demonstrate financial need.
The deadline to apply for Financial Assistance is December 1, 2021.
APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Financial Assistance is available to families with children entering Grades 6-12 who:
- Meet Collingwood's entrance requirements
- Demonstrate financial need
Families wishing to apply for Financial Assistance, must complete an application between October 4 and December 1, 2021 through Apple Financial Services. For separated/divorced parents, both parents must complete a confidential application.
Financial Assistance decisions are based on a family's demonstrated financial need. We currently do not offer merit scholarships based on academic, athletic, or other student achievements.
Admissions decisions and Financial Assistance decisions are made independently of each other. Financial Assistance decisions are communicated in conjunction with admissions decisions.
RAINY DAY FUND
Unexpected events occur in every family, and when such events negatively impact your financial stability, Collingwood's Rainy Day Fund exists to support Collingwood students enrolled in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 to maintain the continuity of school, friends, teachers, sports and more. Collingwood School's Financial Assistance Committee assumes Rainy Day awards to be temporary and that families will return to a more stable condition capable of paying full fees in subsequent years. In some cases, when the need extends beyond the Rainy Day Fund's support, families may then apply for ongoing Financial Assistance.
All current Collingwood Families are eligible to apply for Rainy Day financial assistance. Please contact our Director of Enrolment and Financial Assistance, Lindsay Thierry at 604.925.3331 (Ext. 2080) / firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a confidential meeting to discuss your specific situation.
