Admissions Process

How to begin your child's journey


The school may undertake screening and assessments to determine the right placement of an applicant. The screening and assessment of a student will be determined by the admission committee and will be necessary to complete the registration process for the school. Once this step has been completed, a student may be offered a seat, placed on the waitlist, or denied.

Educators recognise that there is a wide range of behaviour and performance within any grade or year. The admission process includes academic and developmental assessments to identify those students most likely to benefit from our program. We understand that children have different learning needs & challenges, and our teachers are qualified to help each child succeed through differentiation of instruction and assessment and attention to the learning styles of students.
