Rural Student Fee Information

Charlottetown Rural High School (May 16, 2022)

School Fees

1] Student Fee Structure: $30 per student / $40 per family (pro-rated for those entering after September)

Student Fees cover some of the costs associated with providing Special Events, Program Enhancement and Education Equity. The staff, administration, Home & School Association and the vast majority of the parents/guardian feel the many extras covered by student fees greatly enhance the education that students receive here at Charlottetown Rural. With the support of these fees, we are able to offer every family many opportunities to be involved in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. This creates a closer connection for students to Charlottetown Rural and contributes to increased academic success.
