ADMISSION INFO

We know choosing a private school is a major decision and we want you to know we are here to help you in your decision making process. We encourage you to make an appointment with our staff for you and your child to view our school and to answer any questions you may have.

GENERAL INFO

Munro Academy admits students of any race, colour, national, and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities generally made available to the students of the school. Students from any faith background, or none, are invited to consider our great school.​ While Munro Academy may be able to effectively address minimal educational challenges, we are not able to deal with special education at either extreme of the spectrum. Decisions are made upon consideration of individual cases based on the guiding principle of seeking the best schooling alternative for the student in question.

Tuition & Fees

Providing an innovative, quality Christian program of education is costly. By way of comparison, Nova Scotia public schools currently receive over $14,000 per year, per student, to cover costs. At current tuition levels, tuition revenues cover about 60% of costs, with generous personal donations covering the remaining gap. Munro Academy seeks to maintain a tuition structure allowing for intentional Christian education to be accessible for as many Cape Breton families as possible.

Hear what our students have to say about MA.

"I appreciate the teachers’ unending support to their students; you can really see they invest their best into the students. The choice of coming here has improved my development as a person and I am better prepared for the workplace."

~ Simon Kimbley, Grade 10 Student




"I love Munro Academy because it’s a close and supportive family. I like the small classes and the fact that when I walk in the halls I can name every student and every teacher in every classroom; there are relationships being built here and that’s special. I also like the fact that Munro Academy is a Christian School and that we get to worship together and pray for each other."

~ Anna Fenton, Grade 10 Student
