Other Costs and Fees

At Mindware, as you’ll see, supplementary costs (not included in tuition) are very low.


Before and After School

Before and after school care is provided from 7:45 – 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 – 4:15. There is no cost for this service. 

We also have a collaborative arrangement with the Ottawa Boys & Girls Club.  Enrolled students in this program are picked up at MindWare Academy by the BGC staff and brought to the local Club (almost across the street).  Care is provided with fun & educational programming until as late as 7:00 p.m.  There is no extra cost for this service!

Students who do not enroll in the Boys & Girls Club must be picked up at MindWare Academy by 4:15 p.m.


Children are not required to wear uniforms at MindWare Academy.

Field Trips

We take one field trip at the end of the school year. The cost is generally around $30.00 per student. We do however bring guests into our school at no charge to the students.

Hot Lunch Day

We offer Hot Lunch Day once per month. There is a small charge for students who wish to participate.

School Supplies

Students are required to supply the basics, such as pens, pencils, erasers, binders and paper. Any special requirements are generally provided by the school.


Many students in grade 6, 7 and 8 choose to use their own laptops. Although the school does not provide these, students are encouraged to use one.
