How To Apply

Admissions Overview

Rotherglen’s Oakville Primary Campus uses a rolling admissions system, and as such there is no final deadline to apply. We welcome you to submit your child’s application for enrollment now for the upcoming school year. Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first served basis and placements will be offered until our campus meets its designated enrollment limit for the year.

We are pleased to admit many new students each year, however in order to maintain our student to teacher ratios, and reserve positions for our returning pupils, offers of admission are limited. We encourage families to submit their applications in a timely way to avoid disappointment.

Please review the steps below to learn more about the application process, and contact us with any questions you may have.

Step One: Virtual Open House

The most comprehensive way to learn about Rotherglen School is to attend one of our Virtual Open House Sessions. It would be our pleasure to highlight what makes Rotherglen a unique community, and share with you our vision, philosophies, and values.

Step Two: Completed Application for Admission Package

Following the Virtual Open House Session, all interested families must complete the Application for Admission package. You can download a pdf here, once completed please email to primary@rotherglen.com.

The Confidential School Report is to be completed by the child’s current teacher or daycare provider/caregiver and e-mailed or mailed directly to the school.

In order for an efficient and timely admission decision, copies of applicable supporting documents should be submitted along with the Application for Admission package. This includes:

  • Report cards issued during the current academic year and the previous year
  • Confidential School Report (to be completed by your child’s current teacher, daycare provider or caregiver). You can download a pdf here.

Step Three: Entrance Assessment/School Visit

Upon receipt of your application, you will be contacted to arrange a convenient time for you and your child to have an online interview with a member of our Admissions team.  The interview process allows you and your child to get a sense of the program and routines at Rotherglen. It also aids our Admissions team in better understanding 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 acceptance letter to secure placement.

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