5. Scholarships and Bursary Program

CMA is committed to attracting the best and brightest students who show leadership, integrity and compassion and who engage wholeheartedly in the unique vision and reality of a Coast Mountain Academy educational experience. In the early phase of our development, we are working to establish endowment funds that will become the basis for supporting deserving students with scholarships and bursaries. We are committed to raising funds from the Sea-to-Sky community and other local and national organizations that will allow our endowment fund to grow. We are actively soliciting scholarship sponsors and have numerous options for how an individual or organization could choose to directly support student financial need.

For information on how to apply for, or donate to, our scholarship and bursary program, consult the Scholarships and Bursary page.
