Admissions Procedure

RDS Grade 7/8 Program

If you are interested in enrolling your child at the school, please contact:

Rosedale Day School Admissions
Office:  (416) 923-4726
Email:  pfordyce@rds-on.com

Our Admissions Department will set up an interview and tour. We will respond as soon as possible, setting up a time that is convenient for you.
The visit and tour usually takes about an hour, and provides us an opportunity to address any questions you may have regarding our academic programs, facilities and student life opportunities.

We like to provide parents with several days to consider what they have seen at RDS, after which, we will follow up by phone, and hopefully set up a day for your child to spend in the classroom, with his/her prospective classmates.

Interested families are encouraged to submit an application. If we have space in a given grade we will accept students on a rolling basis throughout the school year. Otherwise, families will be placed in our waiting pool and informed in February should space become available after re-registration by our current families.

RDS requires copies of any and all psychological educational reports and individual learning/ educational plans (if applicable). Failure to provide these documents may lead to RDS revoking enrollment.

Activity Morning (JK – Grade 1)

Shortlisted applicants applying to JK, SK and Grade 1 will attend an Activity Morning to assess their readiness for learning, social interaction and development.

Day Visits (Grades 2-5)

Shortlisted applicants applying to Grades 2 through 8 will have an opportunity to spend a day experiencing RDS. Students will attend classes with their current grade level, engage with their peers and the classroom teacher to gain a better understanding of the school’s culture and values. Informal assessment in reading, writing and math will take place during the day.

 

Successful candidates will receive an enrolemnt offer following completion of their activity/visit day. If we have space in a given grade we will accept students on a rolling basis throughout the school year.
