Step 2: Explore Havergal
Before your interview, we invite you to take our virtual tour of Havergal and join us for one of our Admission events. We will be hosting virtual Open Houses, webinars about our academic, co-curricular and wellness programs as well as podcasts that you can download and listen to when it is convenient for you. Visit our Virtual Admission Centre for details and check back often for updates and new opportunities.
Step 3: Interview & Assessment
Once we receive your completed application, a member of the Admission team will contact you to arrange an interview. Interviews begin on October 13, 2020 and will run until February 5, 2021. The interview is designed to allow us to get to know you and your child as well as provide an opportunity for you to ask questions about the Havergal difference. For the health and safety of our applicants, students and faculty, for the time being interviews will be conducted over Zoom. We highly recommend downloading the Zoom app in advance of your interview.
The interview will be approximately 60 minutes and include time with you (parents) together with your child as well as time with your daughter on her own. During the interview, through guided conversation, we will work through a series tasks which are designed to provide the College with an understanding of each applicant’s skills which have been developed in literacy and numeracy as well as in the areas of:
- Critical thinking skills
- Problem solving/reasoning skills
- Self awareness & self management
Within the interview, applicants will also be asked to speak to three specific items that will help us to understand who she is and what she values.
- Two pieces of past school work, in any subject area, that your daughter is proud of
- A personal item that has significance for her
Please note: If English is not the applicant’s first language, they may be asked to write the IELTS assessment to determine their English proficiency.
Step 4: Financial Assistance
Deadline to apply for Financial Assistance: January 4, 2021
Thanks to many gifts from Old Girls, parents and friends, Havergal is able to move toward eliminating the tuition fee barrier for exceptional students in the Upper School who otherwise would not be able to attend Havergal. Financial aid is awarded in the form of a bursary. Bursaries are based on demonstrated financial need and are confidential.
To be considered, please complete the Financial Assistance for Canadian Students (FACS) application form available on applefinancialservices.ca. The deadline to apply is January 4, 2021.
