Our commitment: We will take your child Above and Beyond!

At West Island College, we strongly believe that our educational offering goes above and beyond. We are committed to encouraging each child to succeed; celebrating his/her strengths (academic, athletic, leadership or otherwise), motivating and coaching each child to achieve his/her personal best, and exposing him/her to as many opportunities as they are willing to embrace.

INCLUDED IN OUR FEES:

The “Pursuit of Excellence” Report Cards (4) and ceremonies celebrating excellence. Each report card is reviewed by a grade level Director. If your child demonstrates particular strengths, they are encouraged. If your child demonstrates particular weaknesses in a subject matter, an action plan is put into place as early as the first report card in November, in order to ensure that each student receives the appropriate support. Parents and students are invited to various ceremonies (Opening ceremonies, closing ceremonies and graduation) held during the year to celebrate student achievements in athletics, leadership, individual effort and academics. The cost of these ceremonies as well as the prizes and awards are covered in the fees.

Excursions (the cost of excursions, field trips, etc.) Whether students are visiting Quebec City, Ottawa, hiking in the Adirondacks, visiting a local museum or tagging and studying fish in a nearby stream, all of the costs related to such learning opportunities are covered in the fee structure.

Services covering the social, cultural and leadership development
These services cover the outdoor education trips that form part of the educational program at each grade level, as well as the subsidized portion of the cultural excursions, social or community focused activities. The fees charged for these services cover the transportation, user fees or purchase of specific materials, the fees of guides and supervisors, entrance fees (for example at a museum), cost of meals, lodging and rental of equipment.

Meal Plan
There is a selection of hot meals, sandwiches, soup of the day, salads (a choice of several options), drinks (milk, water and non-carbonated fountain drinks), fruit and dessert served daily at lunchtime. Second helpings are never turned down and part of the meal plan. Lunchtime supervision and access to the cafeteria facilities are also included.

Extra-curricular activities
Each student must participate in at least one extra-curricular activity per term. WIC offers more than 40 competitive sports and clubs to choose from, which allows students to pursue an existing passion or try something new. These fees cover all associated costs, including team uniforms, transport to & from events, facility rentals, coaching costs and teacher supervision, etc.

Technology fees
This includes individual student email accounts, access to the student and parent portals, access to WIC’s wireless network, as well as the maintenance and upgrades to the network.
