Financial Aid and Awards
Make an LCC Education a Reality
We believe that all students should have access to an LCC education regardless of their financial circumstances. As a result, we rely upon generous donations to provide assistance to qualified students in grades 7–12 who have demonstrated need. We offer bursaries and need-based awards established through private donations. The amount is applied to offset the cost of tuition fees.
The process for providing financial aid is thorough and confidential. LCC is part of a network of schools affiliated with Financial Aid for Canadian Students (FACS), an arms-length organization that provides a confidential analysis of a family’s financial ability to contribute toward the school’s tuition fees. A committee then uses the FACS analysis to consider all requests. Any financial aid that is provided is considered to be a bursary for tuition (not a loan). Since personal financial situations may vary from year to year, FACS applications are made on an annual basis.
LCC is pleased to offer merit-based awards to students entering grades 7–12. These awards have been established by the school to recognize student achievement in academics, citizenship, leadership, arts and athletics. Awards established through private donations are also awarded at end-of-year ceremonies to celebrate student achievements.
