Group 1 independent schools spend the same amount or less per pupil than the public school district in which they are located and receive 50% of the local public school grant for operating costs. Group 1 schools must follow the provincial curriculum, employ BC certified teachers, and undergo regular inspections.
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.
