Applying to Grades 1-5

Applying for entry into Grades 1-5 is a three-step process:

To submit an application to SMUS you will need to:

Complete an online application. Please be prepared to submit the following supporting documents:

  • Copies of the two most recent report cards
  • A copy of the birth certificate.
  • A photocopy of the applicant’s permanent residency card.

You will also be asked to provide details of a confidential reference.

Campus Visit (Tour, Testing and Interviews)

The students being assessed will participate in a wide range of activities that help the Admissions team to learn more about the children. The children will also be taken on a tour of the school.

Following the assessment session, some of the students will be invited back to the school with their parents on another day to have an interview with the Director of the Junior School.

Please Note: Because primary grades are not key entry years at the Junior School, spaces become available only if a student withdraws. In the case that a space does become available in a particular grade, then all students who have an application in place will be asked to come in for an assessment morning. If there is not an available space, then testing will not occur.

The Admissions team will review the complete application and decide to place the application in one of three categories:

  1. Offer: the applicant is offered a place.
  2. Wait Pool: the applicant is placed in the wait pool until a space becomes available.
  3. Non-Acceptance: in cases where the Admissions department feels the applicant would not benefit from the program at St. Michaels University School, or if it seems unlikely that spaces will be available, we will notify prospective families as soon as possible.
