Tax Receipts

Each year families who pay tuition are given an income tax receipt that qualifies as a charitable donation.

In recent years the receipt has been for the full amount of tuition paid, or just under (the amount is determined by a complex formula that is computed annually). This reduces the net cost of tuition by as much as 43% through an income tax credit.

Tax receipts are issued in late February.

International Students

International students from around the world come to Saint Mary's School for the opportunity to be immersed in the english language, while integrating completely with other students in our dynamic community.

Here, they'll receive English Language Learning (ELL) assistance and are invited to participate fully in all of our activities, from sports to music as well as all of our clubs, allowing for a well-rounded and enriching learning experience.
