Application Process

Grade 5

Applying to Grade 5

Though not a natural entry grade, one to two openings may occur through attrition. At the end of the selection process, a small wait pool is created in the event an opening occurs.

Please note that while you are able to take the ISEE twice,  St. John's will only accept one ISEE score report. The report must come from a test date during the current admission cycle (September through January) and must be received by January 31. Please do not send more than one report.

Applicants to Grade 5 are considered on the following criteria:
  • Teacher recommendation
  • Academic record (mid-year report card)
  • Test results (OLSAT and ISEE) Note: The OLSAT may only be taken once during the admission cycle (Sept-Jan). The OLSAT is a 72 question aptitude test, and students have 40 minutes to complete. No preparation is allowed for the OLSAT. 

St. John’s requires a parent meeting for admission at all entry and non-entry points. For Grade 5, parent meetings will be scheduled depending upon the availability of spots.
