Asked about: The Banff School

I have 11 year old twin boys. Will I have to pay full tuition for each? How do I apply for financial aide and scholarship funding? Does the school provide pick-up and drop-off transportation? What is the minimum GPA required for acceptance? Are there any international or STEM programs offered?

The Banff School provides a sibling discount for all of our families. We use FACTS Management (factsmgt.com) to assess Financial Aid and Scholarship eligibility and you can apply for these programs as part of the application process. We do not provide transportation for our students for drop-off or pick-up, however, we do offer extended care hours: students can be dropped off as early as 7am each morning and picked up as late as 6pm. This service is provided for a small charge and after-school care also includes a "homework room" time where students can get additional, teacher-led help with the completion of their weekly assignments. Each student considering admission to The Banff School will not be assessed on a specific GPA score for admission, however they do need to be working on-level with their specified grade and be able to pass the Stanford Achievement Test with a satisfactory level of proficiency. All students in our Lower School (K-5) and Upper School (6-12) have STEM-based curriculum with such enhancements as Robotics courses and program-specific field trips to area science and engineering labs for hands-on learning.
