Step 1 – Login to or Create your UCC Application Account

To start your application, you must first either login to your application account or, if you did not create an application account with UCC in the last year, you must create one. Access to the application system will open in September. Please ensure that when you create the account, you use the candidate’s legal name as it appears on his birth certificate or passport.

Step 2 – Submit an Online Application Form and Pay the Application Fee

Once you’ve logged in or created an account, click on the application form button to start filling out the form. You can save your work and return to complete and submit it at any time. Please ensure that all form fields are complete before submitting as the application information cannot be edited once submitted. Please allow two days for processing the application form and payment.

The deadline to apply is November 30, 2018. The application fee schedule is as follows:

Step 3 – Submit Birth Verification and Final Report Cards

Once your form has been processed, you can log back in to upload PDF copies of the following documents:

Applicants are required to submit these documents by November 30, 2018.

Step 4 – Submit a Current Report Card

All applicants will also need to submit a current school report as soon as it becomes available and no later than March 8, 2019.

Please do not submit any additional documents unless requested.

Step 5 – Await Your Family Visit and Assessment

It may seem like an eternity to wait, but we don’t reach out to our SK applicant families to schedule family visits until late-February. We do this mainly to allow applicants as much development time as possible so they have the best chance of demonstrating kindergarten readiness when they visit. Refer to the guide below to understand how we evaluate kindergarten readiness.

Guide to Kindergarten Readiness

Family visits take place during the week of March 25 – 29, 2019. The family visit is typically 30 minutes long. It gives us insight into the applicant and family’s personalities, interests and values through conversation with the boy and his parents together. It’s also an opportunity for parents to gain a deeper insight into who we are and what we do at UCC.

We then invite all applicants back for an assessment on March 30, 2019. The assessment is one hour and surveys development in the following areas: number concepts, auditory skills, paper-and-pencil skills and free-play. This is where we observe your son in a group setting with his peers and evaluate his social skills. We will contact you in early-March regarding your son’s assessment time.

Step 6 – Receive your Decision

Admission decisions for our Senior Kindergarten applicants will be sent on April 2, 2019.
