The full cost of educating a student at École Sofiya School is provided by a combination of government grants, tuition, and various fundraising efforts and volunteer work.

The school receives an annual per-student grant from the Province of Manitoba equal to approximately 50% of the per-student amount given to the public system. This grant contributes to educational costs directly related to the classroom, namely teacher salaries and benefits, and curricular materials.

École Sofiya School assesses an annual tuition, which contributes to the day-to-day operation of the school including rental of the building, energy costs, basic maintenance and building upkeep, technology upgrades, and other related costs.

May Allah bless the members of our community for their donations and volunteer work. Please consider giving your Zakat to the school to promote education.
