Grades 5 & 6—New Entry
Beginning in September 2020, Grade 5 will become an entry year with 20 places for new students. For 2020 only, we also have places for 14 new Grade 6 students. Students joining in Grade 5 or 6 will have the benefit of being part of our Minds Set Free program, which encompasses Grades 5 through 8. Students explore and develop themselves as learners, leaders, community members and citizens of the world through a rigorous academic and co-curricular program that includes a formal leadership program, experiential learning opportunities and increased athletics and performing arts options. Our new buildings, which will open in September 2020, were specifically designed to ensure that students in Grades 5 to 8 could set their minds free to discover how they can make a difference as women leaders of the future.

Step 2: Assessment
Applicants will be invited to an assessment day on December 7, 2019. The assessments will focus on understanding the student’s literacy, numeracy skills, critical thinking skills and interpersonal competencies.
Please note: If English is not the applicant’s first language, they must write the TOEFL Junior test (the Standard Test in paper-delivered format). Scores must be submitted with their application. Interviews and assessments will be granted to students who score sufficiently on this English proficiency test. TOEFL Junior can be taken at any TOEFL test centre. Because of age restrictions, applicants who are under 11 years of age cannot sign up for the TOEFL Junior assessment online. Please feel free to connect with a test centre that is convenient for you. Havergal has worked with Edubridge Education Services in the past. Their website is www.edubca.com. Please note that Havergal does not endorse any specific test centre and does not recommend or endorse any agents.
Step 3: Tour & Interview
We will contact selected candidates to schedule an interview after the registration deadline and once the candidate’s application is compete and all assessment results have been received. The interview is designed to allow us to get to know you and your daughter as well as provide an opportunity for you to ask questions about the Havergal difference. Applicants who are overseas will be invited to participate in a Skype interview. Tours in the Junior School are led by a current Havergal parent or a student ambassador.
Step 4: Admission Decision
All admission decisions will be emailed to families on February 21, 2020.
