Entry Years
Our main entry years are junior kindergarten (25 spaces), kindergarten (15 spaces), grade 1 (20 spaces), grade 4 (10 spaces) and grade 8 (15 spaces). All JK-5 families are welcome to attend assessments. Short-listed candidates will be invited for interviews. Grades 6-12 candidates will write a WPGA assessment. In those grades where spaces are available, we will shortlist candidates for interviews. 

International Applicants
WPGA welcomes applications from international students. Families who do not have Canadian citizenship or permanent residency status will be considered international. International students must live locally with at least one of their parents.
 
WPGA requires that at least one parent of international and out-of-province students possess a valid work or study permit and that the permit does not expire during the enrollment period. In other words, parents must submit a valid work permit or valid study permit prior to enrollment and the document must not expire between the start of school in September of any year and June of the following year.
Enrollment Committee
The Enrollment Committee, chaired by Paul Leslie, Director of Enrollment, consists of the Head of School and members of the Junior and Senior School Leadership Teams. Committee members review applications, participate in interviews and contribute to the admission decision-making process.

No Gifts Policy 
The West Point Grey Academy Enrollment Office has a no-gifts policy. We respect the gesture of appreciation; however, we do not accept donations/gifts of any kind from prospective families.
