Is financial assistance available?

Understanding that an investment in a Crofton House School education will have a transformative impact on a girl's future, Crofton House is committed to building an inclusive community of talented, passionate, and extraordinary students from a wide range of backgrounds independent of their financial circumstances. With the generous support of the wider CHS community, the School offers tuition and program financial assistance in the form of a bursary to qualifying candidates. At this time, financial assistance is only available to currently enrolled students and new students applying to Grade 8.

How are financial assistance decisions made?

Financial assistance is based on demonstrated financial need and is determined on a case-by-case basis. Apple Financial Services will confidentially assess all financial applications and provide the school with an unbiased evaluation of the financial resources available to each applicant family. This information will assist the Financial Assistance Committee in making their decisions. If financial assistance will be awarded, this information will be communicated at the time of offer. 

My daughter is nervous about the interview and/or assessment. How can I help prepare her?

The interview is an opportunity for CHS to learn about your daughter's interests, activities, and thoughts. Similarly, the assessment or observation is an opportunity to see how your daughter thinks and interacts with her environment. The best way to prepare your daughter for the assessment is to have a good night's rest, a solid meal, and to relax. We want to see your daughter at her most comfortable.

What opportunities are there for parents who would like to be involved at Crofton House?

Parent involvement is encouraged at Crofton House School. Once a student is enrolled, there will be many opportunities to be involved with the CHS Parents' Auxiliary, as well as with various school-related activities such as the Annual Golf Tournament, the Crofton House Winter Bazaar, our annual Mother-Daughter Dance, and Father-Daughter Bingo night.

Do you offer any summer camps?

Crofton House currently runs two summer camps for CHS students from SK to Grade 3.

Kinder Camp, for girls entering senior kindergarten and grade 1, is a special opportunity for girls to participate in child-centered activities such as stories, cooking, sports, playtime, games, art, music, drama, and water play.

Discovery Camp, for girls entering grades 2 and 3, offers an opportunity for girls to focus on in-depth exploration in three areas; foods, materials, and the arts. Camps will include a community service component, providing students with a purpose for their projects while also creating meaningful opportunities to share developed skills and efforts.
