Havergal Resources

English Requirements

Havergal does not offer an ESL program. In order for students to be successful at Havergal, they must be able to demonstrate fluency in both oral and written communication. Applicants applying to Grades 4 through 11 whose first language is not English may be required to complete an English proficiency test. Testing is grade-specific and details can be found under each grade’s application page.

Tuition & Fees

At Havergal, we aim to offer the best education and experience for our students as they grow into the leaders of tomorrow. Fees are reviewed annually and set in January for the following year to ensure we can continue to deliver at the highest standard. We also recognize the need for financial assistance to make Havergal a possibility for deserving students. Thanks to generous donations and support from our community, we have an extensive financial aid and bursary program to meet those needs.
