Tuition & Scholarships

Shawnigan’s Advancement Office raises more than $1 million every school year through its Annual Fund campaign. Much of the money raised goes to the Shawnigan Fund, which is designated for current-use financial aid. 

A bursary program is offered to families who cannot afford full tuition. Approximately one quarter of the School's students receive some form of financial assistance. Awards to new and returning students are based on demonstrated need. Students must be in good academic and social standing to be considered.

Final decisions on financial assistance are left to the Headmaster's discretion. 

All NEW and RETURNING students who wish to apply for financial assistance must complete and submit the application form available via the Apple Financial Services website.

Please note, all applications will be considered in the order they are received.


2017-2018 school year fees are:

$48,300 Canadian student
$59,400 American student
$64,900 International student
$26,000 Day student
