Admissions Process

Please contact the admissions office for more information

Each year we encourage students who exhibit the following characteristics to apply to Ashbury College: proven academic achievement, demonstrated commitment and involvement in a variety of co-curricular activities, a positive attitude and the motivation to succeed, leadership potential and the desire to achieve their personal best.

Ashbury's Junior School welcomes girls and boys from Grades 4 to 8, with the main entry points at Grades 4 and 7. Our Senior School, for young men and women, enrolls day and boarding students from Grades 9 to 12, with the main entry points being Grade 9 for day students and Grade 9, 10 and 11 for boarding students. 

Junior School Grades 4-8

Each year the Junior School admits new girls and boys to one Grade 4 class and two Grade 7 classes. Although few girls and boys leave the Junior School before graduation, applications for Grades 5, 6 and 8 are kept on file in the event that places become available.

The Junior School offers First Round Admissions in December by applying in October and November. Students not admitted in December will have their applications brought forward for consideration in our Second Round of Admissions which takes place in March. 

Please note that a limited number of positions are available for the French Social Studies homeroom in Grade 7. This class is for students who wish to experience additional exposure to French conversation beyond regular French lessons. Students who commit to the French Social Studies are grouped for Home Form periods, as well as science classes, in order to give them more opportunities for instruction in French.

Senior School Grades 9-12

 At Ashbury College we accept day and boarding students into our Senior School.

While we do accept applications year round, our day program is competitive, so we advise you to apply early for entry the following September. We do consider applications for Grades 10 and 11 although spaces are limited and offers are made dependent on space. We rarely accept students into Grade 12.

Boarding students are admitted predominantly into Grade 9, 10 and 11, with few openings in Grade 12. Our boarding program has a rolling admissions process, however spaces are usually filled by March of each year.
