International Student Fees
Tuition fees cover all costs for academic instruction including text books and participation in the basic school program
Please note that the tuition fees apply if a student’s parents do not reside, work, and pay income tax in Saskatchewan. Having a parent live temporarily in Saskatchewan during the school year does not change the student’s status.

- Regina Christian School will be responsible for the application of Saskatchewan Health Cards for international students. Although all students ultimately receive a Saskatchewan Health Card, the length of time that it takes for the issuing of a health card is out of our control. If there is a period that the student has to wait for the health card to be issued, the student will be responsible for any health care fees that arise in this time. Because the issuing of a health card depends on the expiry date of the students’ visa and study permit, students and parents need to ensure that the expiry dates are well into the future as to not interfere with the issuing of his or her health card. Again, during a period of waiting for his or her health card, the student is responsible for health care fees at these times.
- Regina Christian School, if possible, may aid in reapplying for Student Visas, from an administrative standpoint (i.e. paperwork). However, Regina Christian School is not responsible for the issuing of the Student Visas as we do not have any control or authority over the decision. The student must pay all of the necessary fees when extending or reapplying for Student Visas. Fees are subject to change annually so please refer to the Immigration and Citizenship Canada website.
- The homestay program will be applied to only Gr. 9 to Gr. 12 applicants.
