Admissions Process.

Thank you for your interest in Ottawa Christian School. Please note our office will be closed for the month of July and the first two weeks of August.


Step 1 - Please fill out the Contact Admissions form below. Once we receive this inquiry we will send you an information package highlighting our Constitution and our Christian values. Also, if you are interested in a tour, we would be happy to schedule one for you!


Step 2 - After you have had a tour, you are welcome to fill out the wait pool application. Wait Pool applicants have priority when spots become available. We review the wait pool in December and March.


Step 3 - If there is a possible spot available for your family, we will invite parents for a Principal Interview.


Step 4 - Once we have reviewed the Wait Pool Application and the Principal Interview, we will contact families to invite them to register.


Step 5 - For us to ensure we can meet your child's educational, social, and emotional needs we require every student to have a student interview including a brief academic screening. If there are any questions or concerns, we will work with parents to find the best path forward.

OCS families pledge a yearly amount to our school based on the number of children that attend. The true cost of what we provide is subsidized through fundraising and donations.

The cost of providing Christ-centered education at Ottawa Christian School is funded by the parents of children enrolled in the school and by the supporting community. Tuition is evaluated and set yearly by the OCS Board of Directors and approved by the school membership.

Our tuition rates are very competitive with the rates of other Christian Schools in Ontario and lower than most independent schools in the Ottawa area.

The revenue derived from tuition does not cover the total cost of providing a high-quality Christian education. Membership fees, donations, fundraisers, other events, and volunteering all help to reduce the cost borne by parents. All families are expected to participate in fund-raising projects and the volunteer effort that is required to operate the school.

A new family registration fee of $600 will be added in addition to the tuition fees. You will be required to pay 1/10th of the total tuition fees upfront as a deposit. Should you decide to cancel your registration after your payment is made, a non-refundable deposit of $250 will be applied against your initial deposit. Your entire deposit will be refunded if your admission is denied.

Net After Tax Cost

The Ottawa Christian School Association is recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency as a registered charity. A portion of the tuition fees are deemed a donation which is tax-deductible. Please check with your tax expert to see how this should be reported on your taxes.
