Considering an Aspengrove education for your child? We’re looking forward to learning more about you and helping support you through this journey. We welcome your questions and would be pleased to meet with you or speak with you on the phone. In the meantime, take a look at our FAQ page for prospective students and their families.
The Admissions Process
Apply in Three Steps
If you’re ready to apply, we encourage you to submit your child’s application online. While Aspengrove School operates on a rolling admissions policy and accepts applications year-round (space dependent), we advise interested families to complete their applications by December 31st in order for us to provide enrollment decisions by the end of February.
You will be asked to submit the following:
- Birth certificate or passport page which clearly shows the student’s legal name, date/place of birth, citizenship, and photo.
- Two most recent report cards (Required only for Grades 1 and higher)
- Academic Reference Form and Character Reference Form (to be submitted directly from teacher/leader to Aspengrove; required only for Grades 1 and higher).
- For Kindergarten applications, please complete the Kindergarten Applicant Reference Form (download to complete the form). This form must be completed by an adult who is not a relative or friend. (Please note, the reference person must return this form directly to Aspengrove School).
- Parents’ citizenship documentation
Submit application fee of $125 (maximum $250/family). Complete payment here.
Upon submitting an application, we will be in touch with you to schedule an assessment to determine your child’s readiness for the Aspengrove program. In particular, we consider numeracy and literacy, independence and self-management, interactions within the classroom, and the current classroom’s composition. At the Junior Kindergarten level, an Early Childhood Educator will meet with the parent and child together in a play-based setting.
We understand students come from various academic backgrounds and may not have been exposed to some concepts we teach at Aspengrove. We consider your child’s potential to be successful at Aspengrove; therefore, there is no need to prepare for the assessment. Typically assessments take place on campus.
Our Admissions Committee reviews all applications. Admissions decisions are based on academic achievement (or potential), the qualities of each individual applicant, the determination of “fit” of school to child and child to school/class, and the availability of space at each grade level. Siblings of current students are offered priority enrollment.
Successful applicants will receive an enrollment offer. To confirm acceptance, a one-time enrollment fee must be submitted along with the enrollment contract. Please visit our tuition page for a schedule of fees.
