At Foothills Academy, we include almost all school-related expenses into the tuition fee.

Tuition fees include:

  • Transportation (city of Calgary and some surrounding communities)
  • All field trip costs
  • All technology costs including use of an individual device (iPad, Chrome book, laptop) every day at school
  • Onsite psychologist team and some specialized Occupational Therapy and Speech-Language Therapy services
  • School supplies & textbook rental fees.

School Supplies

On the first day of school, the students receive their class schedule and all their school supplies from their homeroom teacher. We make every attempt to provide them with everything they will need during the year, including binders, paper, notebooks, textbooks, writing implements and an electronic device. Students are required to request additional supplies as needed through the year.


Each student receives his or her own locker and he or she is expected to keep it in reasonable order during the year and clean it out by the end of June. On the first day of school, the homeroom teachers distribute combination locks and locker numbers to the students.

Gym Strip

Throughout the year, your child’s Physical Education class will be covering a variety of sporting activities. In order for students to do their best and be comfortable, they need to have the correct clothing. Gym strip is mandatory. Students are expected to wear black shorts, a white T-Shirt and training shoes with non-marking soles.

Gym clothing can come from home. Or, Foothills Academy’s gym uniform is available for purchase from the Physical Education staff.
