Admissions Process

Home > School Program > Admissions Process

Connect has an admissions process in order to accommodate the high demand for space in the school.

Connect Charter School uses a waitlist system for its admissions process. We intake 104 students each grade 4 year, with entry in other grades occurring if students leave the program. Grade 4 waitlists are available online under the Family Zone tab. Each grade 4 entry year has its own waitlist, which is capped at 400 names. The waitlists for grades 5-9 are rolled over each year and capped at 100 names.

The nature of our program is such that learners should have the capability for independent learning, the desire to learn and grow with the support and guidance of peers as well as teachers, and an adventurous spirit. As with every school, there is a wide variation in terms of the types of learner at Connect, but those who have found the most success at our school have had the capacity for independent learning but also appreciate and have the capability for highly collaborative work.

The admissions process is comprised of the following steps:

Placement on the waiting list

Submission of Paperwork

Attend Parent Information Session

Offering a Spot

The following considerations are also taken into account when offering spots:


Gender Ratio

Appeals Procedures

Parents may appeal admissions decisions in accordance with Connect Charter School policy 2.02 – Appeals
