I would like to come alone for my first visit. Is that ok?

Absolutely, we understand that choosing a school is a big decision and that parents want to get a sense of a school before introducing it to their child. If you wish to bring your child along on your first visit that’s ok too.

I would like to bring my child for a tour. What next?

The Director of Admission will arrange a time for you and your child to visit the school. Students are interviewed informally during a school tour and no entrance tests are required. Please note that additional assessment may be required if recommended by CGS staff.

I want to apply. What's next?

Applications (including payment by creditcard for the non-refundable application fee of $100.00) are available online below. In order to be processed, completed applications must be accompanied by the non-refundable application fee of $100.00 payable online

All applications are dated and admission is based on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that offers of admission cannot be made until the application and fee is received in full.

When should I apply?

We welcome applications to all of our programs at anytime throughout the year. Due to our small class sizes however, we strongly encourage applications be submitted as early as possible.

The CGS re-registration process for current students is completed in February and March. At that time, offers of admission will be made to the successful SK – Grade 3 outside applicants. For those applying to our JK programs, offers of admission will be made in December. For those applying to our preschool program, offers of admission will be made in October. You will be notified by email or by phone.
