Thank you for considering an application to attend West Point Grey Academy. The 2021-2022 school year application deadline is November 1, 2020.

For health and safety reasons, WPGA is changing the way in which we work with families during the admissions process. To keep all of us safe, we will be moving to a virtual model. This means that we will be meeting families online to conduct assessments. For those candidates who are shortlisted, we will be meeting online for interviews.

  • Admissions Interviews & Decisions

    Interviews
    Following a review of all information, all JK-12 shortlisted families will be invited to a virtual family interview with a member of our Enrollment Committee. The purpose of the interview is for us to get to know each other and to provide an opportunity for families to ask any questions. 

    Decisions
    All admission decisions will be communicated to families electronically.

Entry Years
Our main entry years include junior kindergarten (25 spaces), kindergarten (15 spaces), grade 1 (20 spaces), grade 4 (10 spaces) and grade 8 (15 spaces). Please note that all JK-5 families are welcome to attend assessments. Short-listed candidates will be invited for interviews. All grades 6-12 candidates must write the SSAT. In those grades where we will have space available, we will short-list 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.
