Group 2 independent schools have higher operating costs than the public school districts in which they are located, and therefore receive only 35% of the public school grant for operating costs.
Independent schools in BC offer a wide range of faith-based. philosophical, and pedagogical perspectives, including Catholic, Protestant, University Prep (AP and IB), Jewish, Islamic, Montessori, Waldorf, Special Needs, and Distributed Learning Instruction.
We seek to serve everyone who calls or writes. Enquiries concerning provincial policies or statistical data are most welcome. Enquiries by independent schools concerning membership in FISA BC are appreciated and may be addressed to the Executive Director.
Specific information such as admission process, curriculum offerings, tuition fees payable, etc. can only be obtained by contacting individual schools. Links are provided to the right.
