How to Apply
We have a rolling admission policy. We accept applications throughout the school year. The procedure for admission is slightly different depending on whether you are applying to our preschool or to kindergarten through grade 8. Please select the application that is appropriate for your child.
Preschool Admission Procedure
We offer classes for students from two years old (by December 30th of the entry year) to four years old (by September 30th of the entry year). Applications are accepted on a first come basis. All applications must be received together with a $75 non-refundable application fee. Acceptances are offered on a space available basis. If we have no space availabile in the grade when you apply, we will place your child’s name on a waiting list.
Once we receive your application form and application fee, your child will be invited to visit the school and see the classroom in action. This will give us the opportunity to observe your child and determine the best placement.
Once your application is complete, your child has visited and the application fee received, we will notify you about our admission decision.
