As of September 2014, SML Christian Academy is a tuition free school. This is made possible by:
- Financial support from St. Matthew Lutheran Church.
- Charitable donations from individuals.
- Managing our class sizes to ensure we have adequate grant funds from Alberta Education.
Being tuition fee is not a short-term plan, but a permanent part of our mission focus. We want our school to be accessible to anyone, and we are excited to see how this initiative has brought students to our school that otherwise wouldn’t have been here.
If individuals wish to support our school by offering a charitable donation, they can make a cheque out to St. Matthew Lutheran Church with a note stating that the cheque is a “donation for school operations.” Processing the cheque through the church ensures that the giver receives a charitable receipt for tax purposes. 100% of the funds donated this way through the church will go toward the school.
