ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Admission to The Learning Centre School is decided by the administrators based on several factors including:

  • The applicant’s performance on an entrance exam
  • The transcripts from previous school(s) (if applicable)
  • An interview with the Head of Department or Head of School.

The entrance exam, is required to be taken by all students wishing to apply to TLCS from K3 through Secondary. This exam helps us to better understand the aptitude of the child for the grade to which they are applying.  While this exam is important, we at TLCS also factor in reports and transcripts from past school(s) when applicable, and the results of a required interview with the Head of Department or Head of School.  Once decisions have been made the applicant and family are notified. 

If all spaces are filled, families wishing to be placed on a waiting list will be given that option. Once space becomes available, the applicant will be notified and an offer of admission will be extended.
