Grade 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, 2022. Students interested in the Branksome Hall Entrance Tests will complete the English portion during their interview and a separate date will be shared for the Math Test. 

For all Grade 11 Applicants:
The Math curriculum in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (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 2022. 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

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.
