Step 3 ▶︎ Application and placement test

Upon receipt of the complete application, our Admissions Committee will review your child's application.

For children currently enrolled in a school accredited by the French Ministry of Education, the decision is usually communicated within 4 days.

If your child is attending another school, he/she will be invited to participate in a discovery time (for entry into Kindergarten) or a placement test (for Grades 1 to 12). The decision is then communicated within one week of the test.

  • Admission in Kindergarten (Pre-K, JK, SK)

Discovery time (30 mins) is a play-and-learn interaction with one of our kindergarten teachers. This assessment will be conducted in the applicant’s preferred language (French or English).

*Candidates for PreK class have to be potty trained 

  • Admission in Grades 1 to 12

Admissions tests for Grades 1-12 are assessments of French language skills.

Grade 1 candidates have to be able to understand and speak french. No reading or writing skills are required.  
For candidates applying in Grades 2-12, both written and oral French skills will be assessed.

Step 4 ▶︎ Decision and registration

Admissions decisions will be communicated via email within a week of the discovery time/admissions test. Spaces for admitted students will be held until the deadline date provided in the Letter of Admission.

Registration is complete when:

  • one of the parents has signed the contract online,
  • a deposit on tuition fees has been paid (non-refundable).
