Admissions

Applications are now open for the 2022-23 school year.

Admissions Policy:

Master’s Academy & College has an open admission policy, accepting students with a variety of faith backgrounds. We have chosen not to select students through an academic screening examination, but reserve the right to accept students that fit the learning model, philosophy of Christian Education and programming requirements.

At Master’s Academy & College, students are exposed to value based education that has its roots in the Christian faith. “Love God and love your neighbour” are the two foundational challenges given us by Christ and adopted into the Golden Rule for a life lived well. These Christian values and principles form part of our vision to build a model of education that is missional – it can be shared with others. There are no isolated classes of religious instruction, but learning about God and His principles for life is integrated into the daily learning experience. From time to time, guests are invited to inspire and challenge our students in their faith journey and students daily receive guidance in developing their character through the Seven Habits of the Master Learner and the Five Keys of becoming Imaginal. Choosing Master’s means accepting that the Christian world-view is part of the experience. Parents and students are asked to support this integration of a Christian world-view as each one discovers their own journey of faith.

Society Profound Learning (PL) Fee

Master’s Academy & College is an alternative program within the Palliser Regional School District based on our unique learning model called Profound Learning. Master’s Academy Educational Society charges a Society Profound Learning (PL) fee to help fund the ongoing research, development and delivery of its Profound Learning education model within the context of its Christian worldview. The role of Master’s Society is to provide a 21st century technology rich learning environment as well as equip its teachers with Profound Learning practices, tools and resources.
 

Family Bond Program

The Family Bond is effectively an interest-free loan to the school. The principal is redeemable upon departure from the school, net of any monies owed the school. Participation in this program is mandatory for all families at Master’s Academy & College.

The number of children attending the school determines a family’s required level of participation. Bond participation can take two forms: Bond Purchase or Donation. Parents may select either option or a combination to hold their bond obligation.
Bond Amount
1 Child $7,000
2 Children $8,500
3 or more $10,000

Bond Purchase Option

Individuals, companies or relatives may hold bonds. Master’s retains these funds for the duration of the students’ enrollment at the school. The bond, less any amount owed to Master’s, is returned when the child leaves the school. The school pays no interest on these bonds.
 

Bond Donation Option

Funds donated to the bond program count towards a family’s bond obligation for the duration of the student’s enrollment at the school. Upon departure from the school no funds are refunded.
