The Application Process

List of 5 items.

  • Step 1 | Submit online application

  • Step 2 | Submit supporting documentation

    Required documents:

    • Final report card from last year.
    • Current report cards (as you receive them)
    • Character Reference Form
      • Our first choice for a referee should be a classroom teacher (current or previous). Our second choice would be a coach, youth group director, cub-leader, or someone who interacts with this child in a social setting. We prefer not to receive references from one-to-one tutors or family friends.
    • Any additional documents as outlined and agreed to in the online application
    Please note: only the requested documents will be reviewed in order to maintain consistency and fairness for all applicants. Please do not send additional items such as certificates, photos, or additional reference letters. These items will be discarded.

  • Step 3 | Interviews

    After an application has been received, all candidates will receive an email invitation to attend a virtual student interview and parent interview. Our admissions team accommodates interview times across various time zones.

    Please email if you are unable to find an appointment that suits your time zone.
  • Step 4 | Complete Testing

    • Write the SSAT at home for residents of Canada or the USA, or take the test at any designated Prometric Test Centre.

    • Early Decision candidates must write the SSAT before December 1, 2023.
    • Regular Decision candidates must write the SSAT before March 1, 2024.
    * Please do not hesitate to register for the SSAT as dates fill up quickly.

    * Late applicants should take the SSAT as soon as possible to avoid further delays with your application. Late applications may have a different process.
