Dear MA Families & Friends,

Key dates for re-enrolment

  • January 26: Sibling applications are due.
  • February 9: Online Re-Enrolment opens. You will receive a re-enrolment package during the first week of February directing you to our website. NEW this year: Sibling offers of admission will also be sent home on this date.

  • February 23: Re-enrolment AND sibling offers of admission are due. NEW this year: you can pay your enrolment deposit online with a credit card (fees apply).

  • March 1: Camp Discovery Registration opens – Explorers Camp for Toddlers and Adventurers for students ages 4-6. Please note this year registration for Adventurers Camp opens to the public on the same date, so sessions may fill up quickly.

It is important to contact Victoria Little, Registrar, if you have any changes to your child’s enrolment (ie., switching from part-day to full-day or a change in location), or if you have any questions about the sibling application or re-enrolment process. Contact Victoria at or ext. 211.
