Thank you for your interest in Peoples Christian Academy. We are pleased to provide you with our application kit, which will guide you through our admissions process. We encourage you to read the material carefully. Should you have any questions, however, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:
ALL documentation requested must be received with the application before the review for acceptance process can begin.

 

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS*

International students applying from outside Canada must meet the following requirements:

  • Interview between parents and/or guardian and principal.
  • If, at the end of the interview, the principal accepts the student, a bank draft for the full international tuition fee must be submitted before the school office can issue a letter for the student to use in obtaining his/her student visa.
  • In addition, and at the same time, by separate cheque, medical insurance must be purchased.

Notify school office of any address change:

  • International students SHOULD NOT change their residence during the school year. However, if unforeseen circumstances require students to change residence while attending PCA, they MUST notify the school office immediately so as to avoid a breach of agreement.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT POLICY*

Each year we have limited spaces for international students with student visas.

  1. Preference is given to students from Christian families.
  2. Students must live with a Christian, English-speaking family in Toronto. They may not live on their own or with other students.
  3. Each student is assessed on previous academic records, a family commitment to support the educational philosophy of PCA, and a personal interview.
  4. Students and their parents must complete and sign the Application for Admission form and complete the Visa/Residential Information Form for International Students. They must also sign the Covenant Response Form.  These must be submitted with a copy of the student’s birth certificate or passport and a copy of the student’s academic history (the latest two years of academic reports).  Applicants for Grades 11 and 12 must submit the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) results, where applicable.  An application fee of $150 (non-refundable) must be submitted with the application.
  5. When a student is accepted he/she will receive a letter of conditional admission after the tuition fees and health insurance are paid. Tuition is $20,650.00 (2020-2021)*, which includes the non-refundable tuition deposit of $400.00*, per academic year (September to June). If an entrance test is required, a non-refundable testing fee of $235 will be applied.  Payment is to be made by bank draft/certified cheque.
    Tuition fees are non-refundable unless the student is refused a student visa by Canadian Immigration, at which point, a partial refund will be issued – the non-refundable tuition fee of $1,000.00* is withheld for administration fees. Being a Christian school that is also a registered Canadian charitable organization, an official donation receipt will be issued for the portion of tuition fees paid by a family in excess of the secular training cost (calculated as cost per student x number of children enrolled with PCA). For further details please contact PCA’s Finance Office.
  6. Once the application has been approved and the fees have been paid, PCA will provide a letter of acceptance for immigration purpose. To be admitted, students must obtain a Canadian student visa after they are accepted by the school and before the first day of school.

CANADIAN IMMIGRATION AND YOUR VISA*

  1. If you are not a Canadian or permanent resident, you must have a Canadian student visa in order to study in Canada.
  2. To apply for a Canadian student visa you must have a letter of acceptance from a school.
  3. PCA will issue the letter after the full tuition fees are paid. You take this letter to the Canadian immigration office in your country of origin to be issued a student visa.
  4. Visa renewal: After you are a student, always be sure to pay school fees, receive a letter of acceptance for the next year and report to immigration for a visa renewal for the next academic year. Do this before your visa expires.
  5. If your visa expires, it is difficult, if not impossible to have it renewed and you may be asked to return to your home country.
  6. Please check with Canadian immigration to confirm that there have been no changes in government policy. The above information is valid at the time of this publication.
  7. If the student fails to report to the school for the academic year, Canadian authorities will be notified.
