The Rosedale Day School ADMISSIONS

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 RDS says about their admissions requirements:

We begin accepting applications in September for the following academic year. Should a current grade have any immediate openings we would be able to offer early registration at that time. Alternatively in early February after our current families have re-enrolled should any new openings become available we offer acceptance to students who have met our admissions criteria.

What type of student RDS is looking for:

RDS's Motto is "Every Child is Unique"; we know each child is their own individual. RDS is not looking for potential students who fit into a cookie cutter mould. Children have different needs, and they all learn and thrive in different ways. What RDS is looking for is students with good character. Our four Core Values are the foundation from which success is derived. We look for students whose personalities align with our community and embody them. Our four Core Values are: Diligence - Always doing your best. Integrity - Telling the truth and having strong moral principals. Respect - yourself, your work, peers, teachers, the community, and all those you come in contact with. Involvement - Being an active part of classes, sports, clubs and the whole RDS community.
