Application Fees

The North Vancouver School District 44 offers the IB Diploma Programme as an Enhanced Program option for students across the District. For students entering the two-year programme, the fee is $1500.00, which includes the IBO Registration and Examination Fees.

Fees are assessed in three separate payments. Students pay $500.00 CDN upon acceptance into the programme. Then, the students are assessed $500.00 CDN in April of their first year, with a final assessment of $500.00 CDN in October of their graduation year. Students taking 1-3 IB certificate courses will be charged $550 over two years - $275 in the first year and another $275 in the second year of the programme.

Over the course of the two-years, students will engage in a variety of enrichment activities; if an activity has an additional cost, students will be asked to pay on a per-activity basis. Each September, our students partake in our annual IB DP Retreat at North Vancouver Outdoor School; the cost of the retreat for three days and two nights is approximately $300.00 CDN.

Please note that North Vancouver School District has a policy that recognizes that the payment of fees is a hardship for some families. The NVSD encourages these families to make decisions about application to programmes based on educational reasons, not financial ones. No student will be denied participation in any program due to the inability to pay the associated fees.
