Calgary Academy currently offers Admissions Tours for prospective parents/guardians. Each tour is approximately 1.5 hours and features a brief presentation, followed by a tour of Calgary Academy, and the opportunity to ask questions, and meet our teaching staff and students.

We run Admissions Tours throughout the school year, generally every three weeks between October and June. To register for an upcoming tour, click here.

Once the Admissions Committee has reviewed your application and required documentation, they will determine which program is best suited for your child’s learning needs.

We suggest applying in the fall or winter to avoid any rush/delays with applications. There is a possibility that your child may be put on a waitlist should classes reach capacity.

For those families that apply later in the year, the response times may take longer than usual, and your child may be placed on our waitlist. Applications submitted over the summer may result in your child’s start date being delayed.

Please note that our base criteria for admission to Calgary Academy are average to above-average intelligence and no primary social, emotional, or behavioural needs requiring support. Cognitive functioning is typically determined by the administration of a psychological-educational assessment by a registered psychologist. The Learning Disabilities Association of Canada (LDAC) emphasizes that diagnosed learning disabilities are different from intellectual disabilities. For more information regarding learning disabilities, please consult the LDAC’s website. Additionally, applicants’ learning needs and academic skill levels must be similar to those of our existing student groupings.

It is important to submit the following in your application:

- Your child’s progress reports - Individual Program Plans (if applicable) - Speech/occupational therapy reports (if applicable) - A current Psycho-Educational assessment (required for Academy students who have been accepted into the Academy program and potentially for some Collegiate students).

Upon reviewing these documents, if we feel we need to gather further information, we may need to have a conversation with your child’s school or professionals who have worked with your child. This will give us an accurate representation of your child’s strengths and helps us understand their individual needs. It will also allow us to determine appropriate program placement. Please note that this will not be done without parent/guardian permission.
