    ** NOTE** Qualifying Student Grant Amount (Extended-day Kindergarten, Elementary)
    The above tuition fees are dependent on the school receiving the per student operating grant from the province of British Columbia. If this grant is not received, we would be required to increase fees by the amount of the grant. In the case of early withdrawal, reimbursement of the grant will be required. In order to qualify for the provincial grant, parents must be permanent residents of B.C. and either a Canadian Citizen, landed immigrant or otherwise lawfully admitted to Canada and meet certain attendance criteria including exclusive enrolment in North Star Programs. Please see The Parent Handbook for further details.

    In the event that unforeseen circumstances (natural disaster, weather, labour dispute, etc.) force the closure of schools for an extended period of time, no refund of tuition fees will be paid by the program.
