We did a lot of research on junior/senior high schools as early as when our older son was in grade five. We attended WIC’s open house for two years in a row. We also toured other private schools in SW Calgary and Okotoks. At the WIC open house, we were met with passionate staff and enthusiastic students. All of our questions were answered. Our boys felt very comfortable and welcomed. As parents, we wanted them to continue their French immersion education; we wanted an academically rigorous school with either an AP or IB program; we hoped to find a great school for music, arts, and sports programs; we looked for strong support in terms of university placement and counseling; we wanted a caring and close-knit community…and we found all of the above at WIC! During the summer after our kids finished grade 6, we submitted their applications and we were confident that we made the right decision. In the fall, our kids did the entrance test and the admissions staff took the time to review the results with us and we signed the contract. The whole process was very smooth.

The admission process made me a bit nervous to get in, as I had to complete an admissions test and have an interview. I don't recall doing any studying prior to the exam, and it was an exam to test my current knowledge. The interview asked me about my passions, aspirations, dreams. What I wanted to accomplish, and how I felt the school might be able to help me. Again I didn't feel stressed during the interview, I was more nervous not knowing what questions they would ask. The school was really good at walking me through the whole process and I felt quite confident on the other side of the interviews. Ultimately, I think the admissions wasn't about me proving myself to the school, but about making sure the school would be a good fit for me.
