Brief description of entry evaluation required

We provide a reading and math assessment to see how a child's academic level compares to the class. Motivation and behavior are key factors for enrollment. We are willing to support a child with learning challenges if the child demonstrates the motivation to learn and accept support. Our school puts a lot of effort on character development, so character and how a child relates to a new environment and people is important too.

Deadline for registration (new academic year)

We do not currently have availability in our school. However, August is the final deadline. We would consider January enrollment if a space became available. However, to enter mid-year a child must demonstrate the ability to learn at the current developmental level of the class. We would not put a child in an overly challenging situation mid-year.
