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 12, 2021 and will run until February 4, 2022. 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 child on her own. During the interview, through guided conversation, we will work through a series of 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:
- Literacy, numeracy and communication skills
- Critical thinking skills
- Problem solving/reasoning skills
- Self awareness & self management
Please note: If English is not the applicant’s first language, they may be asked to write the IELTS or TOEFL assessment to determine their English proficiency.
Deadline to apply for Financial Assistance: January 3, 2022
Thanks to many gifts from alumni, 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 3, 2022. Financial assistance decisions are separate from admission decisions. Visit Tuition and Financial Information to learn more and to apply. Havergal also offers several Entrance Scholarships that are based on the financial need demonstrated by the candidate.
All admission decisions will be emailed to families on February 25, 2022. In the case of non-entry years, we will automatically add applicants to our waitlist if no places have become available.
