Admission Policy

Pre-Grade 1B to Grade 12

Delia School of Canada prides itself on being a multicultural School with students enrolled from over 45 different countries. Our School culture is built on the pillars of the acceptance, the celebration of differences, kindness, collaboration, and a steadfast dedication to excellence. As such, the School has developed a Non-Discrimination policy for student admissions. The School admits students of any national or ethnic origin and does not discriminate based on gender, gender identity, race, colour, and/or national or ethnic origin in regards to admission to the School, access to programming, extra-curricular activities, and/or services available at the School.

As an international school, Delia School of Canada has an open admissions policy which allows for the acceptance of students throughout the school year. This policy has been designed to accommodate the needs of members of the global workforce and the Hong Kong community. Applications can be submitted in person, through mail/email, or completed online.

Guidelines 

  • Parents must complete an application package that includes academic and residency documentation.  When all documents have been submitted to the school, the student applicant and parents or guardians may be invited to an interview to discuss the child’s placement. 
  • Delia School of Canada strictly adheres to the guidelines of the year of birth-grade placement policy as outlined by the Ontario Ministry of Education.  Age appropriate grade level placement is strictly enforced.
  • Students who are in need of English instruction are supported with English as a Second Language Programs.  These programs are optional and they will be recommended if the student does not have the necessary English proficiency to complete the course requirements of the grade level.
  • When a class is full, students will be placed on a waitlist. Delia School of Canada is committed to maintaining small class sizes.
