Applications

Your first step to Ideal Mini School

Thank you for your interest in our school. We are delighted to share our school community with you, and our website is a great place to start to explore all that Ideal Mini School offers.

Our application process for Grade 7 students going into Grade 8 begins in the Fall each year. We typically host an Open House event in October/November where families can have the opportunity to visit our school, have a guided tour by our current students, and attend an information session led by our teachers.

For students applying for Grades 9 to 12, we normally accept applications around March which will be reviewed after Spring Break.

Please see below for more information about our application process.
