In Ontario, the education of children in a parentally-involved, independent Christian school requires financial support from parents/guardians.

Tuition fees cover most of the cost of educating our students. A small portion of the annual budget is raised through rental income and donations from parents and the larger Christian community.

The John Knox Christian School Society of Mississauga (JKCS) is a registered charity. Donation receipts will be issued for tuition paid over and above the cost of education.


Transportation Fee:

Families requiring bus transportation pay a fee of $1,650.

Capital Assessment:

A one-time, non refundable, $2,500 capital assessment fee is levied to all new families enrolling their children at JKCS.

The capital assessment fee shares the cost of the physical structure of John Knox between generations. The capital assessment fee also assists in the repayment of long-term indebtedness. Payment of the capital assessment is required upon enrollment.

Grade 6, 7, 8 Fee:

A fee of $850 is levied for each grade 6, 7, and 8 student to cover the cost of band instrument rental, a 4-day Quebec trip, a 3-day Ottawa trip, and a 3-day Leadership Camp.

GIFTS Program Fee:

Volunteering is an important part of the JKCS community. All families are expected to volunteer approximately 30 hours during the school year by committing to one volunteer job. The GIFTS Catalogue of Volunteer Jobs contains a complete list of volunteer jobs.

Families that are unable to volunteer may opt out of the program for an additional fee of $1,000.


If you have a student in an affiliated, private Christian high school, as well as children at JKCS, you may receive up to a 5% bursary on your tuition. Bursary applications must be completed by March 31 for the upcoming school year. Contact us to learn more: 905-829-8048.
