In some provinces, private schools or parents choosing to homeshchool their children receive money from the government. This is not so in Nova Scotia. Munro Academy would not exist but for the steady, sacrificial donations of faithful supporters who believe in Munro's vision to create a "new normal". The figures below reflect cost versus income from tuition.

Munro is about transformation: hearts and minds first and foremost, but also buildings. The neighbours of both campuses see first hand what injecting new life into old, surplus buildings looks like in their communities. There are many upgrades still needed at the North Side campus. Will you help with these CAPITAL COSTS?
Munro puts environmental stewardship as a priority. The Balls Creek campus has a biomass burner and PV solar panels. We are in the process of upgrading the heating system on the Northside, pursuing solar and heat pump options there. Will you help us become even GREENER?
Our mandate is for Munro to be accessible to as many students as possible. To this end, the Board works hard to remove financial hardships whenever possible, including keeping tuition low for everyone and providing bursaries based on financial need. Will you help keep our school diverse by building a BURSARY FUND for those with financial barriers?
The Munro Academy School Bus is a well-used source of life every school day. While this busing service is offered to families free of charge, it is not without significant initial and ongoing costs. Will you help us offset these expenses?
Since 2016, over $740 000 has been raised in donations from a small but mighty group who believe in what Munro is doing in the lives of students and families. Without this financial support, Munro would not exist. Will you join this generous group of supporters?
