Dear Prospective Families With Special Education Children:

We are always honoured with the large number of Special Education applications we receive each year. It is our sincere desire to be able to offer each Special Education family and student excellent support, and in order to do this most effectively we must sometimes cap our Special Education enrolment for any given school year. Please see below for the current status of our Special Education enrolments:

  • 2017/2018 Special Education Enrolments are now CLOSED

May God bless you as you seek Him for His best.
