Other Costs and Fees

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

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!  *Suspended for the 2020/2021 school year due to Covid-19.

Students are required to supply the basics*, such as pens, pencils, erasers, binders and paper. Any special requirements are generally provided by the school.  *Students must have all of their own individual supplies for the 2020/2021 school year due to Covid-19, as no sharing of supplies is permitted.

Laptops

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.
