The Process

Senior 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.

    Application Deadlines for 2022-2023 School Year
    Kindergarten: Monday, November 15, 2021
    Grades 1-5: Monday, November 1, 2021
    Grades 6, 8-11: Monday, November 1, 2021

    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 Grades 9 through 11

    Normally, we would invite your daughter to "Spend A Day At ECS". In addition to meeting one-on-one with Admissions Committee members, including the Senior Academic Lead and spending time with current students and faculty, she would write the Canadian Cognitive Achievement Test (CCAT). There would also be an opportunity for your family to meet with the Head of School to learn more about our culture and community.

    Due to COVID-19, our process has changed. 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. Contact us for more information.
  • Step 4: Wait for a Decision

    The Admissions Committee meets and a decision is usually made within two weeks of the applicant's evaluation.
