Grade 7 is a major entry year with up to 44 available spaces.
Students applying for Grade 7 are asked to prepare a portfolio of graded school work and personal accomplishments to present during the interview. Students can use any medium they wish to prepare their portfolio which should be an “All About Me” sharing of information that allows the interviewer to learn more about each student. Students will be interviewed first, as they share their portfolio, followed by time with the parents/guardians.

As Grade 8 is not an entry year, we do not conduct a full Admissions process until we have confirmed openings. Applications are encouraged should spaces become available. If we move forward with the application, an Admissions member will be in contact to schedule your interview.
