Entry evaluation for students

Interview, testing

Brief description of entry evaluation required

Unlike many private schools, the initial step of the school's process is a meeting with the applicant and his/her parents to determine the suitability of the school. The meeting is cooperative in nature. It explores your child’s academic goals, personality, and compatibility with Metro Prep.

If, after the interview, it appears that your child may be a prospective Metro Prep student, the process moves forward:

Grades 7-9: Students are required to complete our entrance examination (optional for students who have completed the SSAT). This 2.5 hour test is designed to identify the child’s abilities in mathematics, vocabulary, spelling, grammar, and reading comprehension (the test is diagnostic in purpose – your child will never be reduced to a score at Metro Prep).

Grades 10, 11 & 12: Students are admitted based on submission of current academic records.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The school was started with the belief that educators possessing the right attitude can have a profound impact on a student’s life. The school's strength lies in developing the whole individual, through the personal relationships established with students and their families.

All courses are taught at the academic/open level for grades 9 and 10; university preparation and university/college preparation courses are offered at the senior level, as set forth by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Upon graduation, students will be awarded the Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

Metro Prep is founded on the belief that young men and women thrive in a safe, nurturing and rigorous learning environment, where they are encouraged to confidently think, express themselves and ask critical questions. Metro Prep offers a unique university preparation program where faculty doors are always open, the Principal is available to all students anytime of the day or evening, and university success is the only option! Metro Prep is committed to fostering the intellectual, physical, social and creative potential of university-oriented students through a supportive and challenging academic community.
