As a fully accredited independent school, PCAA provides a high-quality, well-rounded education to all our students.

Our environment enables students to achieve academic excellence, express their faith, and create meaningful lasting friendships.

Scholarships & Awards

Scholarships and Awards are offered to students based on merit.

Financial Assistance

PCAA reviews applications for assistance made by families with a genuine need. Decisions are based on a Means Tested Bursary Formula.

A bursary decision may include:

  • Approval for the amount requested
  • Approved but revised
  • Not approved

Both new and returning students are eligible to apply.

*PCAA does not have bursaries available for the Junior Kindergarten program.

How to apply:

  • Complete a Needs Based Bursary application
  • Provide a CRA Notice of Assessment for the current tax year
  • Provide copies of recent pay stubs (both parents)

When to Apply:

Bursary applications are accepted during the re-enrolment periods in February only.

It can take up to six weeks for PCAA to process applications.

Internal Awards

While excellence in academics is certainly recognized, these awards also celebrate other highly prized attributes that are valued:  Christian leadership, community involvement, service, respect, engagement, responsibility, and excellence.

There are a number of types of awards and scholarships offered to our students.

PCAA is extremely grateful to our donors who make our awards possible through their generous support. In fostering a culture of excellence at our school it is important to be able to recognize our student’s pursuit of both personal improvement and enhancing the community around them.
