There are 4 categories of independent schools in BC. Group 1 schools receive 50% grant funding and Group 2 independent schools located in the public school district receive 35%. However, Groups 3 and 4 do not receive any grant funding.
Groups 1, 2 and 4 schools must teach the provincial curriculum and employ only BC certified teachers. Group 2 schools located in the public school districts have a higher operating cost therefore, they receive lower grant funding.+ MORE STATS & RESOURCES
