Payment Details, Options & Schedule

Full Tuition Payment

Full tuition payments must be made by June 15 or within two weeks of registration, whichever is later. Payments made beyond the due date will be assessed a $200.00 financing fee (see 10 month financing below). An additional 3% administration fee will apply to all credit card payments received after the due date.


Sibling Discount

We understand the impact that the cost of an independent school education can have on families with multiple children. In an effort to assist families considering Meadowridge, we have established a tuition discount for families enrolling two or more children. The following applies:

Definition of Sibling: The student must be one of two or more children (biologically or legally adopted) having one or both parents in common. This discount is not available to family members outside the sibling relationship such as step-brothers/ sisters, cousins, and so on, whose permanent residence is at the same address as the student currently enrolled at the School.

The discount is applied to the second and subsequent sibling(s) in the order of birth. Students in receipt of the sibling discount are not eligible for any other discount.

Second Sibling: 5% of Tuition discount

Third and subsequent Sibling(s): 10% of Tuition discount


Payment Financed Over 10 Months

Tuition can be financed over the course of 10 months. Monthly payments will begin on July 1 and can be paid by direct withdrawal or charged to a credit card (Visa or Mastercard). A $200.00 financing fee will apply if paying monthly. An additional 3% administration fee will apply if monthly payments are charged to a credit card.

The School does not accept post dated cheques for tuition fees.


International Students

International Students must pay tuition in full at the time of registration.

Meadowridge Inspires
students to see life from multiple perspectives; to be both participant in, and observer of, a complex, information-rich world; to have the audacity and flexibility to grasp opportunities; and the generosity to share their understanding.


Important Dates & Deadlines

Meadowridge School incurs expenses on a continuous basis, and tuition fees on their own provide only a portion of the funds required to cover the annual operating expenses of the school. Thus, it is essential that the school's annual income is assured through fees. When a student is enrolled, a place is reserved for the entire school year. We ask that parents read all tuition and fee materials very carefully.
