How To Apply

Step One: Schedule A School Tour

We invite you to contact our Admissions Office at primary@rotherglen.com or (905) 338-3528 extension 10, to schedule a school tour.  Upon request, families may choose to learn about our school by scheduling a virtual admissions information session.  Visitors 12 years of age and older will be required to provide Proof of Vaccination, (by one of Health Canada’s approved vaccines administered at least 14 days prior to attending the tour), and valid government-issued photo identification. All visitors will be required to pass the Government of Ontario CoVid-19 Self Screener for Childcare/School Settings and show confirmation prior to entering the school building.  All visitors must wear a mask (medical or 3 layer cotton) at all times while on school property.  In-person tour offerings are subject to change depending on Public Health directives.

Step Two: Application Process

Following a school tour or virtual admissions information session, families are invited to proceed with the application process. The application can be accessed here.  All interested families must submit the following documentation to complete their application:

  • Application on our Admissions portal (link)
  • Report cards issued during the current academic year and the previous year
  • Confidential School Report completed by your child’s current teacher, daycare provider, or caregiver, located in the View Checklist tab in the Parent Portal

Step Three: Interview and Entrance Assessment

Upon receipt of your application, you will be contacted to arrange a convenient time for your child to have an interview with our Admissions team. Applicants will be interviewed with their parents.

Applicants (entering grade 1) will be required to complete an academic assessment that covers grade-level literacy and numeracy expectations. The assessment allows for our Admissions team to better understand your child as a learner and helps to ensure that Rotherglen is the right educational environment/fit.

Step Four: Communication

When a student’s application process is complete, our Admissions team will reach out with an Offer of Admission. If we are unable to offer your child a placement at this time, this will be communicated to you. Your child will be placed in a waiting pool, and you will be contacted if/when a position becomes available.

Step Five: Student Registration

Upon acceptance, parents will be required to submit the Registration Package and necessary tuition payments by the date indicated on the Offer of Admissions letter to secure placement for your child.

Please refer to our Fees and Schedules page for payment options and further details.
