Interviews and Assessments
Once your application is submitted you will have the opportunity to book your virtual interview and pay the application fee through our online booking system.

Families who are applying for JK and SK will have a Zoom interview with a member of our admissions team. Students will not be directly questioned during the interview.

Grades 1-4
A member of our Admissions team will first interview the applicant over Zoom and then parents will be invited for the family interview portion. No preparation is necessary, as it is an opportunity for us to connect and get to know prospective students and their families.

Grades 5 & 6
Please note that Grades 5 and 6 are not entry years and spaces are attrition dependent. We do not conduct a full admissions process until we have confirmed openings. Applications are encouraged in the event spaces become available. Should we move forward with the application, an Admissions member will be in contact to schedule your interview.

Our student assessments take into consideration the age and stage of each applicant while exploring the reading, writing, math and critical thinking proficiencies. We will be in touch with each applicant family to provide information on our assessment plans for this year of virtual admissions. We typically conduct our assessments in January and will update families during the application process.

Land Acknowledgement

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.
