Admissions Process

Home > School Program > Admissions Process

Connect has an admissions process in order to accommodate the high demand for space in the school.

All of our waiting lists are currently full, with over 400 names on the grade 4 waiting list and up to one hundred names on the grade 5 to 9 waiting lists. The purpose of the process is to ensure that there is a good alignment between the learner profile of potential students and the nature of our program. Given the extremely low attrition rate, the primary intake year is grade 4.

The nature of our program is such that learners should have the capability for independent learning, the desire to learn and grow with the support and guidance of peers as well as teachers, and an adventurous spirit. As with every school, there is a wide variation in terms of the types of learner at Connect, but those who have found the most success at our school have had the capacity for independent learning but also appreciate and have the capability for highly collaborative work.

The admissions process is comprised of the following steps:

Placement on the waiting list

Submission of Paperwork

Attend Parent Information Session

Offering a Spot

The following considerations are also taken into account when offering spots:


Gender Ratio

Appeals Procedures

Parents may appeal admissions decisions in accordance with Connect Charter School policy 2.02 – Appeals
