  • Step 7 – Await Visit and Assessment

    Following a review of the required documents submitted, we will contact eligible families to attend interviews and small group assessments. The family visit gives us insight into the applicant and family’s personalities, interests and values through conversation with the student 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. 

    The assessment surveys development in the following areas: number concepts, auditory skills, paper-and-pencil skills and free-play. This is where we observe your child in a group setting with their peers and evaluate social skills. Applicants who do not meet age and language requirements will be notified as soon as possible.

    Small group assessments will take place during the week of January 17–27, 2024. You will only need to participate on one of these dates.

    We strongly encourage families who reside outside of Ontario to contact the Office of Admission before booking travel arrangements.
