Flex Academy Tuition Information
As a division of Heritage Christian Online School, an independent school in BC, Flex Academy receives only 50% of the funding that an equivalent public school receives. In order to provide the educational services expected of a school, independent schools need to charge tuition to make up a portion of the difference from what a public school receives.
Flex Academy does the same, though at a lower rate than other independent schools in the region. Additionally, the majority of independent schools charge an increasing rate of tuition as students move into higher grades due to the inherent increased costs of running educational programs at the middle and high school levels. However, at Flex Academy, our hybrid educational model allows us to keep the same full-time tuition rate all the way through Grade 12.

Charitable Tax Receipt Information
Payee(s) are issued a charitable tax receipt in February for the portion of tuition paid that pertains to religious instruction (please note, any payments for which a charitable tax receipt has been issued are non-refundable). The receipt amount varies from year to year and is calculated in accordance with Canada Revenue Agency requirements. In recent years, on average, Heritage Christian School families have benefited by receiving a charitable tax receipt equivalent to approximately 60% of total tuition. This benefit may be used to reduce the amount of personal income tax paid and, consequently, reduce the total cost of tuition.
A family with two children would pay $8,112 annual tuition, or $676 per month (over twelve months), and receive a charitable tax receipt of approximately $4,867.
Based on 2022 tax rates, the charitable tax receipt would generate non-refundable federal and provincial tax credits of approximately $2,346. Therefore, the annual net-after-tax cost of tuition would be $5,766 ($8,112 – $2,346) or $481 per month, $195 less than the posted monthly tuition rate.
