Step 1 – Review of Application

school application form is submitted online to the Admissions Coordinator along with supporting documentation as well as the $50.00 processing fee. (Note: You will need to create a Login Account if you do not already have one.) Once the application form, processing fee and required documents are submitted, an applicant is added to the queue. The Admissions Committee meets regularly to decide on the suitability of applicants. Sometimes the child's teacher will be contacted for additional information. The application will be processed in a timely manner and the family will be notified of whether or not the applicant will move directly to the Wait List or the Pending Waitlist.

Pending Waitlist - For some students, the Admissions Committee may request additional information, The Admissions Committee may request further documentation or assessments. After this is received it will be reviewed. If the applicant does not meet the criteria families will be notified or the Applicant will be placed on the Waitlist.

Step 2 – Waitlist

When the applicant is deemed a suitable fit for our school program, they are put on the Waitlist. Applicant will be offered a Letter of
Acceptance when an appropriate spot becomes available.

Step 3 – Offer of Acceptance

When a spot becomes available for enrollment, placement is offered. Parents/Guardians will have one week to formally accept the position by signing a Letter of Acceptance.


Enrollment into the school typically begins in mid-late February. If a bursary is requested, the bursary application process is also completed at this point.

Having our child attend Foothills was the best decision we've ever made for him. He has a bright future and has been able to reach the potential we knew he was capable of but was having difficulty achieving in his public school years. — Alumni Parent
