Admissions Process Summer / Online School

St-Laurent Academy offers a continuous online admissions process for Elementary and High School students. The focus of our online platform is to shift student learning from the classroom environment to your home. Students who choose to enrol in our Online School  will learn to ease their way into the reality of learning online, while being taught how to implement a variety of learning strategies and utilize various tools and resources in order to continue academic success virtually and beyond the screen. Our goal is to meet the needs of each individual student’s academic learning profile.  There are usually three steps to this admissions process:

  • Step 1 – Student Academic Records: In order to begin the Online School Admissions Process, we would require copies of the student’s most recent report cards or transcript (High School), any educational or behavioural assessments or Individual Education Plans. These documents can be emailed to our Admissions Director. The reports will be reviewed by our Admissions Team. As well, we would also request a copy of the student’s Birth Certificate or Passport to maintain on file. 
  • Step 2 – Student Video Conference Call: A video conference call may be arranged with prospective new students and their families to further discuss the curriculum expectations for virtual classroom learning and the academic profile of each student. Although students will be learning from home, we want them to experience the St-Laurent Academy difference as much as possible, as such, our experienced teachers will help guide each student through the process of remote learning, from setting up a work space, executive functioning skill building, to the completion of curriculum expectations. 
  • Step 3 – Offer of Admission: Upon receipt and review of the above mentioned documentation, and video conference call if required, St-Laurent Academy may issue an Offer of Admission, along with our complete Offer of Admission package. An Offer of Admission will be extended should both parties believe St-Laurent Academy is the right virtual school for their child. Detailed information and next steps will be included in the admissions offer.

If you would like to apply or learn more about our admissions process, simply submit the form below. We will respond to you as quickly as possible using your preferred method of contact in sending you admission package information or to arrange a video conference call.
