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 tour the school and 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. If you have applied, the student interview can take place during the family’s visit.

An opportunity to sit down with the head or assistant head will be part of the tour. A pre-tour virtual meeting can also be accomodated where you can meet with our head of school. Please contact to schedule a virtual meeting.

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.

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).
