Day Tuition Fees

The fee information on this page is for Day programs at SMUS. See the Boarding fees page for further information about students attending as Boarding students.

St. Michaels University School provides students with an enriched education, including many extracurricular activities. We are equally committed to maintaining accessibility as well as welcoming an exceptional and diverse student body.

The cost of a SMUS education varies by the location of the primary residence, as do the options for paying your fees.

Tuition Fees for the 2021-2022 academic year will be set in January 2021. Fees typically rise 3.5% to 5% amount each year. For more information, please contact the Admissions team.

What Fees Cover

Tuition fees are paid yearly and cover 10 months of instruction, textbooks and transportation costs for SMUS athletic teams, music groups and other clubs.

Sibling Discount

All categories of fees are eligible for a 5% discount off tuition for each additional child that attends SMUS when you have one child already registered for the same year.

Our sibling discount appeal: if you are comfortable meeting the financial obligations of tuition without the 5% sibling discount, SMUS asks you to consider donating that 5% to our annual fund in exchange for a tax receipt (in Canada, the US and Britain) to support our campaign to build our endowment and make SMUS more affordable for all families.
