The steps

Island Pacific School

Our Admission to School Process

We look forward to working with you through the admission to school process to determine if IPS is a good fit for your family. Here are the steps for families to follow to navigate the admissions to school process. 

1. VISIT: Students and parents visit us to see if we’re a good fit and if your child is ready to meet the challenges and opportunities of the IPS middle school program. We look forward to welcoming you from October through to the end of May each year. We are closed during the summer. The student visit is intented to take place in the school year prior to the requested enrollment year. The student interview will take place during the student’s visit for the day.

2. APPLY: Parents complete our online admission to school application (below) and upload requested attachments as prompted. This can be submitted prior to the visit if you wish (and we recommend it so that during your visit we focus on your child and your needs).

3. ASSESSMENT: Parents book an IPS Student Assessment for their child, see the sign up link below (application submission is a pre-requisite for the assessment).
