January is “application month” at several levels of education. Semestered public high schools are about to start their second term so students are juggling course schedules and transferring to new schools. College-bound Grade 12 students are working on their applications and those applying to university have a looming January deadline as well.
Most private schools begin the acceptance process in January and we are no different. Assessments have already begun at TEAM and the Primary Campus and next Saturday, January 14 is the first entrance examination date for new students at the Main Campus (along with an Open House at all campuses). Parents of all Mentor JK to Grade 7 students received their 2017-2018 application forms in the mail this week as well. note: Grade 8 to 11 students will get their forms the first week of February and TEAM’s Grade 1 to 7 students will get this package the first week of March.
We encourage you to let your friends, colleagues, and family members know about next Saturday’s Open House in whatever format you like to use whether it is social media, telephone, email, sharing a link to this blog or a person-to-person conversation (yes, I have heard these still take place!). We love having guests and it is really special when a current student takes a prospective family they know on a tour of the school so feel free to come in as well! If not, we will have administrators, teachers and students who will answer all of their questions and give them a warm welcome (there’s no windchill inside the school either!)
