Submit Your Application

For students to be considered in our initial offering in January 2021, their applications must be received by December 15, 2020. Our second-round application deadline is March 31, 2021. Applications received after that date will be processed on a rolling basis until such time as classes are fully enrolled.

The Application Form must accompany the following for submission:
  • $150 (non-refundable) application fee

  • Copy of the latest transcript (applying for Grades 10–12)
  • Teacher/counsellor recommendation form for SK - Grade 3 or Grade 4 - Grade 12. These can be downloaded from the buttons on the right.

Next Steps

Once a complete application is received, the Admissions team will contact you about setting up the next steps which may might include an interview, testing or classroom observation.

Lower School (JK - Grade 1) Observation Session and Family Interview
Families interested in Junior Kindergarten, Senior Kindergarten and Grade 1 are scheduled to attend a family interview. The student will also be scheduled to participate in an observation session with our Kindergarten teachers. The observation session is typically 45 minutes long and occurs on a day separate from the family interview.

Lower School and Middle School (Grades 2 - 8) Interview Day
Prospective students are required to attend the school for a family interview and an academic assessment which will include a writing sample, mathematics and reading comprehension. No advance preparation is required. Selected candidates will be invited to participate in a school day visit with an HTS Student Ambassador. 

Senior School (Grades 9 - 12) Interview Day
Prospective students will be invited for a family interview and to complete an academic assessment. The interview is a wonderful way for the school to get to know the student and parents, understand their goals and to learn why they believe HTS is a great fit for their family. The assessment will include a writing sample, mathematics and reading comprehension. No advance preparation is required.  

Acceptance Letters

The first-round of acceptance letters will be sent out during the third week of January. Second-round decision letters will be sent out during the first week of April.

Selection Criteria

Although strong academic skills are a requirement for entry at all grade levels, students are not selected on the basis of academic results alone. Involvement in the arts, athletics and community service are also important, just as much as teacher and/or counsellor recommendations are of great value.
