Tuition costs for the school year are $14,000.00. Tuition costs cover all school fees and school supplies.
Tuition costs are out-of-pocket costs to parents and are net of any grants we receive from Alberta Education. On average it costs approximately $40,000 to educate each student who attends the Janus Academy. Funding comes from Alberta Education disability amounts, students tuition and the remainder of cost per student will be fundraised each year. Parents who have students attending the Janus Academy must make the commitment to help fundraise through a variety of events such as a Casino and Spring Gala.
There is no fee to apply. A deposit of $2000.00 is payable upon acceptance into the program and the completion of registration. The balance of the tuition is to be paid in full by June 15th, prior to the start of the school year.
Medical Tax Credits
Tuition costs not covered through bursaries for parents of students can be claimed as medical tax credits if certain conditions are fulfilled. To be eligible for medical tax credits, parents must submit a letter written by a medical doctor or chartered psychologist with their income tax form. The letter must clearly state that the student has a diagnosis of Autism or PDD that requires the specialized services provided at the Janus Academy. The letter must be dated prior to the student's enrollment at the Janus Academy. A letter from Janus Academy confirming enrolment and services and tuition tax receipts will be provided to you prior to February each year.
Families of accepted students may apply for bursaries from the following organizations. Bursaries may pay some or all of the tuition fees depending on the organization, number of applicants, and qualifications. If you require further information on these bursaries, please contact the school at (403) 262-3333.
