Interviews and Assessments

Grade 9 is a major entry year with approximately 24 openings. Grades 10 and 11 have more limited openings, between six and 10 for each grade.

A member of our Admissions Team will first interview the applicant, then parents/guardians will be invited in for the family interview portion.

Grades 9–11 applicants are required to either write our Branksome Hall Math and English Entrance Tests or submit their results of the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test). For more information on writing the SSAT, please visit the SSAT website, and book your test to be written by January 21, 2024. Students interested in the Branksome Hall Entrance Tests will complete a writing task and a Math assessment in January, 2024. More details on these Branksome Hall tests will be shared with applicants throughout the Admissions process.

For all Grade 11 applicants, the Math curriculum in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (Grades 11 and 12 at Branksome Hall) is advanced and requires that students complete their Ontario Grade 11 Functions Math credit (MCR3U) before starting at Branksome Hall in September 2024. There are many options for students to complete this credit and the Admissions Team will be pleased to guide applicants through this requirement. Should you have any questions, please contact us at admissions@branksome.on.ca.

We wish to acknowledge this land on which Branksome operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and go to school on this land.

Setting the new standard for girls' education everywhere takes collective action. From all of us.
