Private schools in Canada have admissions policies, and they require application materials. These may include letters of application, application fees, essays, and tests (such as the SSAT). Many schools also require interviews with prospective students. Schools also use different criteria for evaluating student applications, have different acceptance rates, and target different kinds of students. To improve your child’s chances of acceptance, find out everything you can about a school’s admissions policies and how they assess applicants.

What type of student Lower Canada College is looking for:
At LCC we aim to educate the child in mind, body and heart and, as such, admission considerations at our school extend beyond test results. We want to know the whole child. We seek diverse students who demonstrate potential, excitement for learning, and commitment. When we invite a student to join our school, we believe that it will be a mutually beneficial experience. We want the child to grow beyond their imagination and expect that their involvement in our community will strengthen the school as a whole.
