We understand that selecting a school for your child is an important decision requiring a great deal of consideration. We thank you for your interest and we are here to guide you through the application and admission process at The Toronto Heschel School. We encourage you to visit us and explore The Toronto Heschel experience for yourself. We invite you to join us for a private tour or at one of our open house events to discover the difference. Please contact the admissions office at 416-635-1876 ext. 334 or email email@example.com for further information.
The admission process includes the following steps:
- Application Form and Fee: We require that you complete the Application Form and submit it to the school office, together with the Application Fee of $500 and include all supporting documents including report cards.
- Interview and assessment: Depending on availability and eligibility, we may contact you to schedule an individual interview between the parent(s) and the Principal, and a visit by the prospective student to the school for an assessment. The assessment procedure may vary by grade. Students applying for grades 2 through 8 may be required to have a formal psycho-educational assesment completed by the specialist of the family’s choice. The school can make recommendations and provide contact information for particular specialists upon parental request. Should you withdraw your child’s application prior to the interview and/or assessment being conducted, $250 of the $500 Application Fee will be refunded.
- Letter of acceptance: Through our admission process, we liaise closely with applicants and their parents and we accept students for admission considering various factors, including the best interests of the child and his/her family, and the school’s guiding principles. We will notify you in writing whether your child is accepted. For students entering JK, the admission process is expected to be completed by the end of January preceding their entry. For students entering other grades, most places will be awarded by April. If vacancies occur, we may accept additional students later in the year.
- Deposit: Upon acceptance, the Application Fee of $500 will be applied as a deposit towards the tuition fee for the year of entry. No refund will be available after a letter of admission has been issued. If we do not admit your child to The Toronto Heschel School, for any reason, the $500 Application Fee will be refunded to you in its entirety.
Priority is given to applications for qualified siblings and children of staff, and over time, alumni, provided that applications for such children are received 12 months prior to the beginning of the school year of entry.
