Tuition & Affordability
Mulgrave is a not-for-profit organisation and tuition fees cover the operating costs of the school including teacher salaries, learning resources, and facility maintenance. Special improvements to further enrich our provision, as well as our ability to provide Financial Assistance and Bursaries, are made possible by the generous donations of Mulgrave families.
For your tuition and consolidated fees, students benefit from a personalised education experience that enables them to discover their passions and reach their personal best.

Refundable Family Deposit
All new families joining the School are required to deposit $20,000 per family in the form of a non-interest bearing loan to Mulgrave School. Families have made the investment to ensure the future of Mulgrave School and the enrichment of educational opportunities for their children. The school was built through the issue of bonds/deposits by Mulgrave families. The deposits currently collected provide funds for the redemption of previously issued bonds/deposits from families graduating, moving away from the area and leaving the school. The $20,000 deposit will be returned in the fall after the last child from the family no longer attends Mulgrave.
We are eager to make a Mulgrave education accessible to qualified candidates from a range of socio-economic backgrounds as represented throughout the Lower Mainland. As such, we are pleased to offer personalised tuition plans (partial or full support) to new students entering Grades 7 to 11. Financial Assistance is need-based and offered to families who meet the following criteria:
1. A strong (academically and in other areas) applicant who will actively contribute to our community
2. A demonstrated family financial need as evaluated by a third-party service, based on documents such as tax returns
Mulgrave's deadline for the consideration of Financial Assistance is February 1st. Families must indicate their interest in the programme on their application form. Financial Assistance decisions are shared with families along with their offer of admission.
Bursary Financial Aid
The goal of Mulgrave's bursary programme is to provide temporary support to current Mulgrave families who experience unforeseen financial difficulties.
Our tuition assistance is meant to allow our students to remain at Mulgrave until their circumstances change or for up to three years. The amount of support offered is based on an evaluation through a third party financial service.
For more information about our bursary programme, including directions on how to apply, please contact Nadine Pettman.
