Tuition and Funding

PALS Autism School is a year-round Group 1 independent bricks and mortar school, designated as Special Education School by the B.C. Ministry of Education. It also offers a licensed Before and After School Care program.

The founders of PALS established the school based on the belief that every child deserves to receive an education appropriate to his or her learning needs.  The costs of providing individualized education with appropriate behavioural support for children with autism is understandably very high.  In addition to receiving foundation, corporate and private donations, the society undertakes a number of fundraising activities throughout the year including an annual gala and numerous parent driven initiatives.

Tuition amounts are based upon the level of teaching support required by the child to participate in group learning, as determined during the intake assessment.  Interested families should email  for more details on tuition and the programs being offered at PALS Autism School.
