Withdrawal Process

This is at the discretion of the school and the limitations of the school timetable.

Withdrawal Procedure

Both Academy programs and school courses are staffed based on enrollment information. Payment of the first month's academy fee completed the registration process, in essence committing to the program for the duration of the school year, with the following exceptions:

1. Illness / Injury / Medical

A student requesting withdrawal from an academy for medical reasons will be asked to substantiate the request with physician signed documentation (must be attached to this form). Fees would be discontinued effective the last day of the month in which the documented notification was received by the District Principal of Enhanced Programs and Academies.

3. Reasons Other than Above

We require a minimum of 15 days written notice (completed Academy Withdrawal Form) to consider a withdrawal request. A decision will be made collaboratively by the Academy teacher, school counsellor and the District Principal of Enhanced Programs and Academies. A student withdrawing from an academy may or may not be placed into a regular course, depending upon space availability. This is at the discretion of the school and the limitations of the school timetable. Fees would be discontinued effective the last day of the month in which the appropriate notification was received by the District Principal of Enhanced Programs and Academies.
