How to enroll your child at Arrowsmith School Peterborough
The decision as to whether a student who is experiencing difficulty at school may be suitable for Arrowsmith School can usually be made based on discussion by telephone with parents and often with the students themselves.
Where necessary, we can also review school report cards and results of academic and psychological testing. Our experience has shown that most parents can identify with great accuracy the problems that their child is having at school.
Each student enrolling at Arrowsmith is assessed to determine the student’s learning profile and to plan the student’s program. Information about the assessment procedure is in the Assessment section of our web site.
Enrollment and tuition at Arrowsmith School Peterborough
The annual tuition fee for the 2012 - 2013 school year is $16,000 and includes all program and academic fees and materials for the full school year. The only other fees or charges will be for various field trips throughout the school year. Tuition fees are not subject to the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) or Provincial Sales Tax.
Tuition fees at private schools are not tax deductible. Parents of students enrolled in the Arrowsmith Program in Canada (at Arrowsmith School and at other schools that offer this program) may claim the Medical Expense Tax Credit. In certain circumstances, transportation and additional living expenses may qualify for the Medical Expense Tax Credit. Determination of whether an individual qualifies for the Medical Expense Tax Credit is made by Revenue Canada. We recommend that families in all cases contact their own accountant or financial advisor. Links to information on this are located under Tax Credit (Canada).
