Out of Province High School Applicants

We carefully consider each applicant based on a review of academic transcripts and activities outside the classroom which you’ll report when you complete the Online Student Profile (our supplemental application). If your first language is not English, we may also require that you provide proof that you have satisfied your English Language Requirement.

Academic Requirements

Candidates from Canadian provinces and territories outside of Ontario will be considered for admission based on the following criteria:

  • Successful completion of diploma requirements as defined by the Ministry of Education in their province or territory
  • Completion of the required courses for the province or territory, as listed below
  • Proof of English facility (if required)*

The Admissions Committee considers a candidate’s overall academic history with emphasis on the prerequisite course average. You must present grades of 70% or higher in individual prerequisite courses to qualify for admission consideration. Please note that successful candidates typically present much higher grades,

If you are following a mixed curriculum, your application will be reviewed on the basis of your overall academic record. In addition to reviewing the requirements below, candidates who are also completing the IB Diploma should review our IB requirements.

*English Language Requirement

You may be required to provide proof of English proficiency, please visit the English Language Requirements page to evaluate if you are required to satisfy this requirement.

If you do not meet the English Language Requirements at the time of admission or you are worried that you test score will not meet our minimum requirements, you may want to consider applying for the International Foundation Program (IFP).
