General Program Tuition

Tuition Payments

Tuition is due in full at the time of registration. However, in an attempt to make tuition payments more convenient for families, VAB parents or students may be eligible to arrange a monthly payment option with the school. The monthly payments are split into equal payments across 10 months no matter how many classes there are per month. These payment methods are available only to families whose accounts are in good standing and who do not have a history of missed or NSF payments. Tuition owing from previous years or terms must be paid before registration is permitted for the following year or before student can continue in the second term. A NSF fee of $25 is due for every bounced cheque/payment.

Payment Options

  1. Payment in full
  2. Payment in monthly installments*

*For monthly payment, post-dated cheques or Pre-Authorized Debit only. Fees for September/June and Registration are due upon registration. Following monthly payments are charged on the 1st of each month, October to May.
