The Process

Middle School Admissions

List of 4 items.

  • Step 1: Get the Ball Rolling

    Help us get to know your daughter and family better by filling out our Intake Form. From here, we will get in touch with you to answer all your initial questions and set you up with your online application login and password.
  • Step 2: Apply Online

    We work on a rolling system and welcome applications at any time during the year but we highly recommend starting the process early. Should you have any questions or concerns as you work through the application, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Admissions Officer.

    In addition, for your daughter to apply to ECS, we ask that all students and their families provide the following documents:
  • Step 3: Participate in the Evaluation Process

    For entrance to Grade 7
    Normally, we would invite your daughter to "Spend A Day At ECS". They would meet one-on-one with Admissions Committee members, including the Head of School and spend time with current students and faculty. Parents would also have the opportunity to meet with the Head of School to learn more about our culture and community.

    Students applying to Grade 7 would also be asked to write the Brisson Legris Common Admissions Test. The agency would then sends the scores to the schools to which the child is applying.

    In response to the challenges associated with COVID-19 and our desire to ensure the health and safety of all, the Common Admission Test for students entering grade 7 in September 2021 has been suspended for the coming year. We will create a portrait of each applicant through report cards, teacher confidential forms, personal interviews (child and family), and virtual Spend-A-Day meetings with ECS student buddies. Unfortunately, we will not be hosting in-person events.
     
    For entrance to Grades 6 and 8
    Normally, your daughter would write the Canadian Cognitive Achievement Test (CAT) and meet with the Admissions Committee members. There would also be an opportunity for your family to spend time with the Head of School to learn more about our culture and community.

    Due to COVID-19, our process will be changing. We will create a portrait of each applicant through report cards, teacher confidential forms, personal interviews (child and family), and virtual Spend-A-Day meetings with ECS student buddies. Unfortunately, we will not be hosting in-person events.
  • Step 4: Wait for a Decision

    For students for Grades 6 and 8, the Admissions Committee meets and a decision is usually made within two weeks of the applicant's evaluation.

    For students applying for Grade 7, QAIS schools will be giving decisions beginning November 6th, 2020.
