Applications are accepted throughout the school year depending on seat availability. In Preschool, Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten, placements are made according to birthdates. From Grade 1 onwards, grade placements are made primarily based on admission assessments, previous school records, and grade last completed.
Ivy strives to support a wide range of learning support needs. Numerous learning support services are available including counselling, learning skills support, academic remediation, and a gifted and talented program. However, these resources are finite, and admissible applicants may be placed in a learning support waitpool when grade level learning support programs are at full capacity.
