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)

As Grades 1-5 are not key entry years at the Junior School, spaces become available only if a current student withdraws. Should a space become available in a particular grade, students who have an application in place may be asked to visit the school.

The students who are invited for a full day assessment will participate in a wide range of activities that help the Admissions team learn more about them. They will visit the Junior School and will spend time completing an assessment, playing outside with a buddy, sharing lunch time with the class, shadowing in a classroom, and touring the school. Their parents will meet with the Director at some point during the same day.

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.
