Generally, the first step in our admissions process is to set up a meeting with our Admissions Coordinator. Meetings with our Admissions Coordinator can be held virtually or in-person during the 2020-2021 school year. Unfortunately, tours and classroom visits cannot occur at this time, following the guidelines of our Re-Entry Plan.
After your meeting with our Admissions Coordinator, it’s time to fill out a Prospective Student Application. Depending on the age/grade of your child, choose the appropriate application:
Once the Application is filled out, refer back to the checklist on Page 3 to ensure that all necessary documents are attached, including the $100 application fee. Application fees may be paid by cheque. Applications may be mailed to New Heights School or emailed to [email protected] (If you are emailing your Application, please send your $100 application fee cheque separately by mail).
Once an application is submitted, complete with the $100 application fee and required documentation, New Heights will contact you for the next step in the application process. For example, we may request to be connected with your child’s current or former teachers or therapists for a reference.
If New Heights is determined to be an appropriate program to address your child’s needs and strengths, and there is availability in the suitable classroom, you will be notified by letter of your child’s acceptance, and will receive the necessary information to enroll your child.
Please note: New Heights may request a trial period before confirming enrollment.
If there is not space in the suitable classroom for a potential student, they will be placed on our waitlist for possible openings during the current year, or for registration in the following school year.
If space in a classroom becomes available, we consider the specific needs of both the prospective student, and the students currently in the class. The goal is to ensure that we are able to provide an ideal learning environment for the prospective student and the existing class. Therefore, placement cannot always be defined as “first come, first served”. Placement is dependent upon the suitability of the position for a specific student.
