We are delighted to offer a wide variety of in-person & virtual programming options. If you have questions, reach out to us at info@rcoa.ca.

Please be aware RCOA plans its annual budget, hires teachers, and rents facilities for the year based on student sign-up numbers for each program and location. By paying the deposit you indicate an intention to participate for the duration of the program. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable.  

2021-2022 Full year Program fees have the following invoicing options:

Payment in Full
100%Choice made at sign-up
  • withdrawl or cancellation will have a partial refund
Custom
Select the first and last month and number of payments (no payments after June 1st)
  • withdrawal or cancellation will have a partial refund

In the event that you need to withdraw from a program, your financial commitment is to pay the next month’s payment owing (or equivalent), you will receive a refund for any fees above this amount that you pre-paid. In the event that RCOA cancels your selected program(s) you will recieve a full refund.

Some Families have asked for clarity on how this looks if they withdraw before the school year starts. If you remain enrolled with RCOA but you withdraw from a program prior to June 30th  the portion that was required to secure your seat is lost. If you withdraw from a program during the summer (July 1st to August 31st) the September portion will still be required. This applies regardless of the source of the payment (Ministry Funds or Out-of-pocket)

 As outlined in the Parent/Guardian Resources Agreement concerning Ministry Funds Grades K-9 enrolled families are provided a per child allotment of ministry funds which many families have allocated to the RCOA in-person and virtual programming fees.  Ministry funds allocated to programming must be repaid to RCOA if you withdraw your enrolment or change from enrolled to registered status on or before September 30th. If you withdraw from RCOA on or after October 1st, I will repay Ministry funds above half of the total allotted.

In the case of the programs that lock Ministry Funding (K-7 PIE & 8/9 HUB) the portion returned to the family’s Ministry Funding pot will follow the same refund policy as for a family who pre-paid. Also, Term-by-Term Clubs and single day Activities require full payment to secure seats and will follow the same policies as a deposit if there are changes.

Regarding changes make in response to Provincial Health Orders – In the event that RCOA is required to transition to comparable in-person or virtual programming, your financial commitment remains the same.  

RETURNING LEARNERS: priority sign up for programming during the month of February
NEW LEARNERS: sign up for programming begins March 1st
REGISTERED LEARNERS: sign-up for programming begins  August 15th
What if  my preference is FULL with a WAITLIST?  Waitlists are in chronological order. You will be notified when a seat is available. Payment of the non-refundable, non-transferable deposit will secure the seat in that club or class.

IMPORTANT  ADMISSIONS UPDATE


We are sorry to inform you that our Learning Services program is now full for the 2021-2022 school year.  We strive to provide the best possible support for all of our families, and due to an overwhelming response, all of our resources are at capacity.  This means that at this time we are unable to admit any new learners with KPQ or R designations or other learners requiring learning support assistance.

We don't take it lightly that you reached out to us.  We will keep your name on the waitlist in case there are some withdrawals, but we recommend that you seek other arrangements for your Fall programming.  

Blessings to you as you plan your year
