Part 2: The Admission Process

Our admissions team will process all applications as quickly as possible. Acceptance letters will be mailed out or delivered as outlined on our Important Dates page.

Upon receiving an Offer of Admission, parents or guardians must confirm acceptance of the Offer of Admission via email to

In the event that a student does not meet the criteria required for entrance to Leahurst College, or that a spot is not available, the deposit will be refunded. If/when a waitlist is created, the deposit will be held while the applicant remains on the waitlist. The deposit will be refunded if/when the applicant is removed from the waitlist. In all other cases, the deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable (i.e. cannot be used towards the tuition of a sibling).

Part 3: The Registration Process

The registration process will take place over the summer. At that time, online registration will be available via our Parent Portal, but permission forms, signed registration forms, and post-dated cheques must be completed and delivered to the School.

Your child's registration is considered complete when:

  1. they have accepted their Offer of Admission via email
  2. the deposit has been paid
  3. all online registration steps have been completed
  4. the Financial Statement has been downloaded and signed
  5. tuition post-dated cheques (payable to "Leahurst College High School Inc.") have been delivered to the School

We must receive everything at the School by the deadline of July 1. If a class is full, and we do not receive your documents by July 1, we will offer your child’s spot to the next applicant on the waitlist.
