Tuition & Fees

Middle Tuition & Fees

Our Middle School teaching team is a core group of faculty dedicated to teaching girls of this age group. They understand how to meet the girls’ developmental needs, both academic and psychosocial. Our faculty and staff are here to guide students as they navigate their pre-adolescent and adolescent years using our five ECS Values as milestones in their journey.

  • Other Fees

    Enrollment Fee
    An Enrollment Fee of $200.00 is payable at the time a student is admitted to ECS. This fee is credited to the final statement of account on June 30th provided the student is enrolled at ECS for the entire School year. If a student leaves ECS prior to the end of the School year, the Enrollment Fee is forfeited.

    New Student Building Fund
    All families of new students are invited to make a $1,500 gift to the School in support of the ECS New Student Building Fund. The Building Fund provides the necessary funding for capital improvements, and capital expenditures not covered by tuition fees and government subsidies. Tax receipts will be issued.
  • Bursaries

    Thanks to the support of generous donors, ECS is able to provide financial support in the form of bursaries to those students who need it. The number of bursaries awarded each year may vary, but the ultimate target is 15% of the grade 6 - 11 population. The amount of the bursary will vary according to need, but will not exceed 75% of tuition. The recipient must meet the entrance requirements of the School, but not necessarily be a scholarship-level student. However, the bursary does not disqualify a scholarship candidate.

    ECS uses Apple Financial Services (AFP) to process bursary applications. AFP will provide a standardized and unbiased evaluation in a confidential setting. Applications can be made here. Deadline is October 22, 2018.
