Fees apply to international students who wish to study with the Ottawa Catholic School Board. Fees include ESL program instruction if required, and transportation services, if the student's residential address meets the distance criteria. Transportation is also provided to ESL Centres at high schools that fall outside the regular boundaries of the student's primary residence. As of 2012, our Board accepts fee-paying international students at all grade levels - elementary, intermediate and secondary.
Tuition fees do NOT apply to:
To register an international student, please contact the Board's Admissions Department. Upon payment of fees and supplying proof of medical insurance coverage to the Admissions Department, a letter of acceptance will be issued which is required to obtain a study permit. A study permit is required for all fee-paying international students unless they are in Canada for less than 6 months. You will also be directed to contact our Board's Family Welcome Centre. In addition to assessing needs and helping the student enter the classroom, their friendly staff will assist families with the process of acquiring proper immunizations for the student, as required.
