The Federation of Independent School Associations in BC (FISA BC) is a voluntary association of all major independent school groups in the province of British Columbia.
All kinds. FISA BC encompasses special needs, university prep, religious, Montessori, and Waldorf schools. Sixty percent of independent schools have a strong religious connection.
There are five groups. See "Member Associations" in the drop-down list under "Who Are We?" to see a brief description of each group.
If your application is accepted your school will be a member of the Associate Member Group (AMG), the group established for schools with no other provincial affiliation.
The current membership is $5.25 per pupil per year.
Contact the FISA BC office and ask for the Executive Director, Peter Froese.
Each of the five member associations chooses three persons to serve on the FISA BC Board of Directors. The Board meets nine times each year and governs the work of the Executive Director.
