Welcome! We are delighted that you are considering Oakwood Academy. This application package is an integral part of our admissions process. Oakwood Academy specializes in individualized education and therefore our admission process is an important part of ensuring your child is set up for success!

We are trying to gain as much information about students and their families as possible so that all parties involved have a solid foundation for a rich and engaging personal interview.

Oakwood offers continual enrolment throughout the year, however we do have very limited space and we encourage you to apply early to avoid being placed on a wait list.

Step 1: THE ABOUT YOUR CHILD FORM

The About Your Child Form is to be completed by the parent(s)/guardian(s) of the applicant. Once the form has been completed and submitted you will be contacted by our admissions office about your inquires or to set up a school tour.
Please contact Melissa Chin to request an About Your Child Form

Step 2: THE TOUR & MEETING

Once your form has been received, we will be in touch to set up a meeting and tour. Both the applicant and their parent(s)/guardian(s) are expected to attend the meeting. In order to properly make a recommendation about the student’s placement, the applicant must attend the meeting.

Step 3: TRIAL DAY OPPORTUNITY

In some cases we will suggest a trial day to determine appropriate placement in our Academic Program. On this day, your child will spend a half or full day at school, fully integrated into a classroom setting so that we can best determine their strengths, goals and support level before recommending placement.

Step 4: THE DECISION

Decisions are made after a personal meeting and assessment of the applicant. At this time a recommendation for suitable placement and services within the school are made and discussed with families.

Step 5: THE FINAL STEP – REGISTRATION FORMS

Upon acceptance, you will receive registration forms to be completed.
THE FOLLOWING MUST ACCOMPANY YOUR APPLICATION:

  • $500 Application Fee (applied to the tuition total)
  • A copy of the applicant’s birth certificate or passport
  • A copy of the applicant’s most recent immunization records
  • Post-dated cheques (please refer to Fees for tuition breakdown)

Please note that international student fees may be applicable.
