Contact the admissions clerk or an Admissions Officer to arrange a tour.

In the case of an Applicant who requires a Student Visa/Dependent Visa, the admissions process cannot be finalized until the proper documentation has been submitted. Conditional enrollment may be granted pending visa approval. A student may not attend school or start classes without first providing the school proof of rights to remain in Hong Kong and attend classes. 

Interview Process

The application process at Delia School of Canada is a three-step process followed by a student orientation process for successful applicants. The process has been developed to simplify the application and enrollment procedures. Families are highly encouraged to join a school tour prior to the submission of the Application Form as an interview is not used to introduce the School. School tours are available in the following languages: English, Putonghua, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean and Hindi.

Step One – School Tour and Consultation

We highly recommend that families attend a School Tour. School Tours can be arranged between 9:30am and 2:00pm Monday to Friday. During the School Tour, families will be introduced to the School Culture at DSC and encouraged to ask questions about programming and extra-curricular activities. This offers families an excellent opportunity to learn more about DSC and decide if DSC is the right school for the Applicant. School Tours can be arranged on an individual basis and in groups. Families can register for a tour at any time.

Step Two – Submission and Review of Application Package and Supporting Documentation

Pre-Grade 1 to Grade 12 application packages and supporting documentation may be submitted to the Admissions Office in person, by post, online, or by email/fax. Once an application package has been received an Admissions Officer or the Head of Admissions will be assigned to assist the family complete the application process. Once all documents have been submitted, the assigned staff member will review the package. This review process will result in four possible outcomes:

  • Further documentation/clarification may be required by the School (i.e. valid student/dependent visa)
  • The application will be moved to Step 3
  • The application package will be reviewed by the Deputy Principal and the Admissions Team
  • An interview is not offered

Step Three - Interview and Assessment/Evaluation

An interview and assessment will be arranged for successful applicants who pass the initial review process. Families who submitted applications by fax or email must bring the originals or a clear photocopy of each document to the interview for verification. The interview will be scheduled for 30 to 45 minutes. This will include a discussion of the School’s philosophy, education programming, and expectations. The latter part of the interview will help to establish if DSC is the right choice for the family. In some cases, the interview and required assessment(s), if any, may be scheduled on the same day to ensure families traveling from overseas may complete all items during a single visit. The same process is implemented for interviews and assessment completed overseas.

Evaluation/Assessment Process - The evaluation and assessment process may take 30 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes. Younger students will receive a basic evaluation process to establish their English competency level. Parents may remain in the room. Students in grades 4 to 12 will be evaluated without the parents in the room.

ESL and English Testing (Ontario Program) - If required, students entering the Ontario Program in Grades 1 to 8 will undergo a basic ESL evaluation to establish their ESL level. The staff member conducting the interview will indicate a level on the application form. The Head of Admissions will administer an Entrance Exam for all grade 9 to 12 students to establish which level of ESL is needed, if any. 

Entrance Exam – Students entering the Alternative Program will be evaluated in English, Math, Science, and Art.  The Alternative Program does not offer an ESL Program and students must successfully pass an English competency exam. 

Student Orientation -  All students entering Grades 4 to 8 must attend a student orientation program with a parent or guardian before the first day of classes. This program will cover school life, expectations, school rules, digital citizenship and ICT equipment usage and usernames and passwords. All students entering Grades 9 to 12 must attend a student orientation program before the first day of classes. This program will cover school life, expectations, school rules, digital citizenship and ICT equipment usage and usernames and passwords. This orientation will also involve meeting the guidance counselor.
