How to Apply

Applications for the 2021 – 2022 school year will open in August 2020.

Admissions Process

Our goal is to develop students of great character, our admissions process is set up to consider your child as a whole person, not just a potential student. To ensure that your child will thrive at Southridge, we look at a variety of criteria, including: participation in extra-curricular activities, academic record, citizenship, motivation, determination, and resiliency. Our financial assistance program offers all new Senior School students the opportunity to be rewarded scholarships and bursaries.

We understand that your child's education is a very important decision for your family and our goal is to do everything we can to make the process of applying as stress-free as possible.

We strive to ensure all grades are gender-balanced. Southridge has openings every year as follows:

  • Grade K: 32 spaces
  • Grade 1: 4 spaces
  • Grade 4: 4 spaces
  • Grade 8: 28 spaces

Students applying to all other grades are considered for placement in our wait pool, from which we select if and when an opening arises due to normal attrition.

All applicants must be fluent in both oral and written English; we do not offer any ESL programs at the school.

Grades 8 - 12 decisions will be available to view in your account on or before March 1, 2020.
