We are conducting virtual tours via a Microsoft Teams meeting so that we can introduce you to our school and answer your questions remotely and safely. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a one hour Microsoft Teams meeting.

For students in Grades 1 to 8, applicants complete one day of assessments in reading, writing and math, to give us a better understanding of their strengths and opportunities. However, due to the current COVID-19 protocols, we are unable to offer onsite assessments in Reading, Writing and Math for students in Grades 1 to 8.
Due to COVID-19 and the need to restrict school access, we invite interested students to book an online Trial Day, so that we can assess their skills. Report cards, teacher references and supporting documents will also be reviewed. For students in Grades 9 to 12, Report Cards and Teacher References will be used to determine whether an applicant is a good fit for the rigorous IB Programmes.
We also ask for the following:
1. For Upper School students (Grades 7 to 12): English, Science or Social Studies teacher reference
This form is to be completed by the student’s current English, Science or Social Studies teacher.
2. For Upper School students (Grades 7 to 12): Math teacher reference
This form is to be completed by the student’s current Math teacher.
3. Report Cards for SK – Grade 8
Please scan (or take clear pictures with your phone) the two most recent Report Cards for your child.
During the summer, as schools are closed, Teacher References are not required for new registrations for the September 2021 start date. We will be reviewing report cards to assess suitability for our academic program.
Upper School (Grades 7 to 12) students’ Teacher Reference forms must be submitted from the teachers to the Admissions Office email (email@example.com) directly. Please submit supporting documents by emailing them to our Admissions Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Admission decisions are made based on a careful review of the applicant’s report cards, academic potential, extracurricular accomplishments, character and overall suitability for the IB St. Jude’s Academy experience.
Please let us know if your child has any academic, social or behavioural concerns. Learning support is available. Our Guidance Counsellor continues to assess student cases as needed.
Once your Report Cards are assessed, and we believe that your child would be a good fit for St. Jude’s Academy, we will invite you to complete and submit our Registration Package electronically. This package is available on our website by grade on our Tuition and Fees page, linked below, and can also be sent to you by email.
Due to the current school closures, completed packages with all supporting documents and payments must be received by email in order to process new students. Detailed payment options are in the Registration Package.
Welcome to St. Jude’s Academy! We look forward to meeting you soon!
