K–12 Education Supports
Toquaht Nation values education as the foundation for a better future. Our Community Services department provides tutoring and financial assistance for students from Kindergarten through Grade 12. We also celebrate the achievements of our children and youth by participating in the NTC bursaries and awards and graduation ceremony. In addition, we offer financial recognition to youth who graduate from Grade 12, so don’t forget to share a copy of your diploma with us!
School Supplies Allowance
Toquaht Nation provides an annual allowance to help cover the cost of school supplies for Toquaht citizens who are registered in grades K–12.
The application for this allowance may be completed by the Toquaht student or their parent/guardian. Applications must be submitted between August 1 to September 30 each year. Any applications received outside of this time frame will not be accepted.
For more information on this support, please refer to the School Supplies Allowance Policy. To apply for this allowance, complete the School Supplies Allowance Application and submit it to email@example.com.
Youth Recreation Fund
Toquaht citizens under 26 years old are eligible to receive an annual allowance to participate in healthy recreational activities and extracurricular field trips outside the regular school curriculum. The Recreation Fund covers the cost of organized activities, as well as related supplies or equipment. For example, if a youth is interested in playing soccer, costs such as registration fees, required shoes/uniform, and travel for out-of-town tournaments are eligible expenses.
Applications for the Recreation Fund can be completed by a Toquaht student or their parent or guardian and can be submitted at any time throughout the year. Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Refer to the Recreation Fund Policy for more information.
Good Grades Allowance
Toquaht Nation rewards students in grades 1 to 12 who excel academically with the Good Grades Allowance program. This incentive recognizes Toquaht citizens who attend school regularly, strive for good grades, and are committed to pursuing higher education.
To be eligible for the allowance, Toquaht students must submit their report cards for each academic term within two weeks of receiving them. Only report cards received during the school year (September to June) will be considered.
For more information, please refer to the Good Grades Allowance Policy.
