FAQs

Our Campus is Open ... and we can't wait to see you!

We are excited to welcome our students back to campus in September (some earlier for our Self-Isolation Program) and to offer the unique and exceptional experience that our families expect.
 
The Return-to-Campus Plan is intended to provide RNS families with information on what the “new normal” will look and feel like in September. To ensure the safety of our community, we will continue to follow guidelines from the New Brunswick Department of Public Health (NBPH), consult with the New Brunswick’s Department of Education and Early Childhood and dialogue with numerous other national and local organizations.
 
We are committed to providing a safe and dynamic learning experience for our students and keeping our families updated as our plan evolves.
 
We continue to compile answers to a number of frequently asked questions. If you don't find the answer you're looking for, don't hesitate to reach out to us at info@rns.cc.

  • Q. Is the RNS Admissions Process going ahead as planned?

    Yes – the Admissions Process is proceeding as normal. We also understand that some students are in need of additional flexibility in meeting deadlines as a result of disruptions to schooling or exams due to COVID-19. RNS is committed to working with any students who may need extra time in order to complete their application.
     
  • Q. What are the impacts on the Admissions Process due to COVID-19 Disruptions?

    The RNS Admissions Process strives to be personalized in order to really get to know each potential student and their family. 

    We understand that school closures and the introduction of other measures have impacted students all over the world. We do not anticipate that any of these measures will prevent potential students from enrolling at RNS.

    The Admissions Process remains unchanged. RNS will continue to review grades from multiple school years, teacher recommendations, responses from the application questionnaire, and information from an interview, as we have always done in making admission decisions. We understand that there may be individual situations that could require slight modifications and we are happy to work with applicants on these.

Tuition, Fees & Assistance

List of 2 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. I received my Statement of Account. What if I can’t make the payment right away?

    Your statements will be sent out next week. The deadline for next year’s deposit was March 20, 2020. We want to thank families who have made this commitment for next year and encourage those who can to make payment as soon as possible. We are aware, however, you may be challenged to fulfill this obligation at this time. We have granted extensions, when requested, and have waived all monthly interest charges until June 19, 2020.

    All trips and other incidental expenses normally charged this month have been cancelled, reversed or refunded.  If this is not the case, please contact us. We are also reviewing our incremental and variable cost savings for boarding students not currently in residence. It is our intent to consider some form of credit where applicable to boarding families. Details will be made available later in the school year.

    If your circumstances are such that you require financial accommodations beyond those which have been outlined, please do not hesitate to contact either Tanya Moran (tanya.moran@rns.cc) or Shauna MacNeill (shauna.macneill@rns.cc) in the Business Office.
     
  • Q. Is Tuition Assistance available?

    We continue to process applications and requests for Scholarships and Bursaries. If families now need to seek tuition assistance for the 2020–21 academic year or have a previous offer revisited, please submit your request to the Admissions team at any time. We will do our best to accommodate as many families as possible given the current financial situation.
