Application Process

We are now accepting applications for Kindergarten – Grade 12 for the 2022-2023 school year.

1. Visit us.

We hold Parent/Guardian Tours for families considering Grades 4-12 each month and Open Houses for families considering Kindergarten to Grade 3. We would love to meet you! Our tours include an overview of our programs and the chance to see our work in action. You’ll meet some of our students, a variety of staff, and get to peek into some classrooms.

2. Apply online.

All of the necessary documents required to complete an application are provided and viewable in your online application portal checklist after you have submitted an application. To complete the admissions application, students in Grades 2 – 12 that are ideal candidates for the Academy program must provide the results of a Psychoeducational Assessment that is no more than 18 months old. Should it be determined that a child in the Collegiate Program requires classroom or exam accommodations, parents will be notified to submit the results of a Psychoeducational Assessment (this assessment should be no more than 18 months old). 

3. Getting to know your child.

Following completion of the online application and receipt of the admissions deposit, the Admissions Committee will review your child’s educational history and other relevant documents to determine eligibility to the Academy or Collegiate program. If we believe our school is the best option for your child’s success, a Student Needs Assessment is conducted. During this informal meeting, your child will meet one-on-one with a member of the Admissions Team, allowing us to get to know your child and gain a deeper understanding of their current academic performance and school needs. Your child will receive a personalized tour (dependent on the time of year) of our facilities. Please note that scheduling a Student Needs Assessment does not guarantee placement at our school. Once a Student Needs Assessment is complete, a final review is conducted with the Admissions Committee and you would then be notified of the next steps.

4. We’ll be in touch.

The Admissions Committee will take all your child’s learning needs and history into consideration to determine an appropriate program placement. If an offer of admission is extended, or if a placement cannot be offered, you will be informed by a member of the Admissions Team.

Application Process FAQs

What is the difference in applying early (fall/winter) versus applying late (spring/summer)? 

As applications and enrolment are both timely processes for families that include a substantial amount of forms to be completed, we suggest applying early to avoid any rush/delays. This also includes a delay in processing payments/refunds. Our response times later in the year may take longer than usual. There is also a possibility that your child may be put on a waitlist should classes reach capacity. Please note that applications submitted over the summer break may result in your child’s start date being delayed. For those applying in August/September, please be aware that we still need to adhere to the admissions process and we need time to prepare for their first day of school.  

Do you accept students mid-year?

We do consider mid-year placement should the information in the application indicate that your child’s needs would be a match for our already existing groupings, and considering space is available in that grade. With any applications submitted mid-year, we must adhere to the same admissions process as we do with all other applicants. Please note that additional fees may apply if enrolled after Sept. 30 and tuition will be prorated. Please see the Fees & Payments page for more details on mid-year enrolment.
