Tuition Tax Benefit

Families are eligible to receive a tax receipt for a percentage of tuition paid.  Each year this percentage is calculated using an established tax formula.  This tax relief significantly reduces tuition costs.

What is my tax receipt really worth?

The credit value of your tax receipt is determined by provincial and federal tax laws. The following examples will illustrate the actual value to you, when you submit your tax receipt under “Charitable Donations” on your income tax return. The assumption is that the family has already contributed a minimum of $200 in other charitable donations, which means that the tax rate allowed on the remainder is 43.7%.  (For more information …)

Financial Aid

St. John Brebeuf is committed to Catholic Education.  We are a Christian community that acts with justice and integrity. The Echon Bursary Fund was created to provide a lasting legacy to make Catholic Education accessible to all. If you are experiencing difficulty meeting tuition costs, please come in and speak with our Principal or Parish Priest.  Cases for tuition deferral will be held in a discreet manner and evaluated on an individual basis.

Parent Participation

If you require assistance with completing your Parent Participation hours, please complete this Exemption Request Form. Requests are presented to the St. John Brebeuf High School Education Committee where a decision will be made. Each request is handled discreetly and evaluated on an individual basis. Partial and full exemptions are valid for a school year and families are required to reapply if their situation persists and need to be considered again for the following year.
