Our Secondary School admissions process is for students in Years 7-13 (Grades 6-12). Secondary School students attend school 8:25 a.m. – 3:40 p.m. After-school clubs as well as before-school and after-school care are available.

Admissions Process

The admissions process for Years 7-13 consists of the steps below.

Attend a group tour (optional): We recommend parents attend a group tour to explore our school with a member of the Admissions Team. You'll observe students in the classroom, learn about the admissions process and have a chance to ask questions of faculty. We are holding group tours every Wednesday from 9-10:30 a.m. September 14 through December 14. 

1. Submit the application: Click here to download the 2017-18 application. The online application is available now. The application is due Monday, January 9, 2017. In addition to the application, you'll need to submit the following items:

2. Attend a shadow day: The shadow day allows your child to get to know current students and experience our school’s unique learning environment first-hand. We'll schedule your shadow day once your application is on file. 

3. Attend a parent meeting: During the parent meeting, you'll meet with a member of the Admissions Team to learn more about each other, your educational values and what makes our school special.
