Step 2: Assessment
Grade 8 to 11 applicants must write the SSAT and may register to write the test at www.ssat.org. For any student applying for Grade 8 through 11, the SSAT must be completed by January 20, 2020. Applicants may be interviewed prior to writing the SSAT.
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 3: Tour & Interview
We will contact selected candidates to schedule interviews after the registration deadline and once the candidate’s SSAT 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. Upper School tours are led by student volunteers, known as Havergal Ambassadors.
Step 4: Financial Assistance
Deadline to apply for Financial Assistance: January 6, 2020
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 6, 2020. Financial assistance decisions are separate from admission decisions. Visit Tuition and Finanancial Information to learn more and to apply. Havergal also offers several Entrance Scholarships that are based on the financial need demonstrated by the candidate.
Step 5: Admission Decision
All admission decisions will be emailed to families on February 21, 2020.
