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. These steps do not have to be completed in this order. We recommend that you get your application form in as soon as possible.

1. Students and parents visit us to see if we’re a good fit. We look forward to welcoming you from late September through to the end of May each year and we are closed during the summer. The student visit is intented to take place in the school year prior to the requested enrollment year.

2. 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. Parents book and complete an IPS Student Assessment for their child.
