Step 3: Review of Application and Admissions Status Notification

Completed application packages will undergo a detailed review by key faculty and staff, including the admissions office and Head of School. Families will be advised of our decision in writing via e-mail.

If the applicant has been offered a place, the parents will need to confirm the offer by returning a signed copy of the offer letter, usually within 14 days. If the confirmation deadline is missed, the offer is not guaranteed. 

Step 4: Orientation Meeting Prior to School Start

A mandatory orientation meeting with a Principal/Counsellor and the student and parent(s) is required prior to the student starting in school.  Depending on acceptance date, the first term's fees may also be due.

Orientation meetings for students beginning in August will be scheduled to take place in June or in August, 1-2 weeks prior to school start, in order have the majority of new students begin in school on the first day of term. Mid-term arrivals will start in school approximately 2 days after their orientation meeting takes place.

Enrolment remains conditional subject to the student meeting the academic, behavior, and financial requirements of the school.
