Assessment Overview 
We assess every applicant to determine their academic strengths, social readiness and potential for success at West Point Grey Academy. Assessments vary per grade, with each assessment designed to assess a student’s ability in numeracy, literacy and social skills. The assessment provides us with a sample of the student's work and, along with the application form, school reports (if applicable) and reference letters, offers insight into an applicant’s readiness and fit for WPGA.
