Elementary School Admissions Policy

The intention of the North Toronto Christian School is to provide the best possible academic education within a Christian environment. In order to do so, a certain admissions policy is established.

Age

Students during Extended Care Junior kindergarten children should be 4 years old, senior kindergarten children should be 5 years old, and grade one children should be 6 years old by December 31 of the year of admission.

Academics

General achievement should not be more than three months below grade placement. Exceptions will be made in unusual circumstances if lower achievement can be satisfactorily explained and the program will be helpful.

Behaviour

Students from other schools must have a deportment record or recommendation that is average or above average in order to be granted admission.

Attitude

Children should have a general eagerness toward learning in accordance with their age. Children who have developed a contempt for the Christian way of life will not be enrolled. Children above the grade 4 level should be attending the school by their own choice.

It should be understood that families who may satisfy the above general standards may still not gain admission to the school the first year that they apply, simply due to a lack of available space.

Family Discounts

Tuition fees are set annually and structured to provide for the operating needs of the school. As a family-oriented school, the rates are kept as reasonable as possible to make the program affordable to most families. For that reason there are generous discounts when more than one child from a family is enrolled.

Overall, admission is based on availability of space, a personal interview, an admissions test (if necessary), analysis of the previous report card, written indication of parental support for our program, and a verbal indication of interest by the student. When the application has been approved and the registration fee and capital deposit have been received, a letter of acceptance will be issued to reserve a place in class.
