Registration and Fees

The following outline is provided as general guide for registering a child at Westboro Academy.  Parents or guardians who are financially responsible for any student attending Westboro Academy are required to sign an Enrolment Contract that delineates the payment amounts and options as well as the school’s and parents’ responsibilities. Operating as a not-for-profit charitable organization, Westboro Academy also relies on donations and fund-raising activities for the acquisition of some educational materials, equipment, contingencies, and a building fund.  The school will issue tax receipts for all financial donations.
