Financial Assistance

Jackman ICS is committed to needs-based financial support that will both enable increased diversity and retain current laboratory school families.

 

Five forms of financial assistance options available through the Diana Rankin/ Muncaster Family Tuition Support Fund.

The Tuition Support Committee is working to actively expand economic diversity at Jackman ICS. This committee is made up of the Principal, Vice-Principal, two current parents, three alumni parents, and one external member (Vice-Principal at UTS).

In 2017-2018, the total financial support awarded was over $110,000.
