Q. What will the tuition be for 2013-2014?
A. If you would like information on tuition and other fees, please contact us for details.
Q. How do I apply for financial assistance?
A. CIH Academy is pleased to offer financial assistance every year . Our financial assistance is need-based, beginning with partial assistance and it is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning January 1st of each calendar year. For more information, please contact us at email@example.com.
Q. The website says the CIH Academy is a registered charity. What does that mean?
A. The entire project is owned and operated as a not-for-profit entity. Simply put, this means that CIH Academy is not concerned with making profits but rather with putting athletes first. While most private schools have built-in profit margins in their rates, CIH Academy operates on a cost-recovery model. In the event of a surplus, it must be reinvested in the Campus through infrastructure renewal and financial assistance for athletes.
Q. What if my son or daughter requires medical attention?
A. A. In the event of an injury or illness, athletes have access to the Clarence-Rockland Family Health Centre which is located 1km down the street and an infirmary on campus consisting of offices, beds, and all the facilities necessary to treat and isolate sick athletes. For more serious health concerns, the region has exceptional medical facilities in nearby Ottawa.
Q. Will the Campus be safe?
A. Yes. The Campus is safely secured by electronic access and well-lit pedestrian walkways at night. Our residences has a "House Parent" on duty every evening and all day on the weekends. Ensuring your child's safety is our top priority.
Q. How are the athletes occupied over the weekend?
A. There is never a shortage of things to do for CIH Academy players. If they are not at a weekend tournament, they will be brushing up on their studies or partaking in an organized activity. With so much to do and places to visit in the Nation's Capital, Ottawa, activities will sometimes be educational (such as visiting Parliament Hill, national museums, historic sites, or attending events) or simply fun (such as skating on the world's longest outdoor skating rink, the Rideau Canal, or hiking in the region's jewel, Gatineau Park).
Q. Will there a uniform at CIH Academy?
A. Yes. Boys have to wear dress pants and collared golf shirts while girls have to wear dress pants or skirts (no shorter than 2 inches above the knee) and collared golf shirts or blouses. For away games, players wear suits with team jackets. Casual clothes are permitted in residence. All Academy clothing are available through Top Marks, our uniform provider.
