Boarding Student Application Process

SJK is delighted to welcome academically oriented new boarding students each new school year with September entries only. The admissions for the next school year starts in September on a rolling admissions basis until vacancies are filled. Early applications are preferred so that the newly enrolled students would have sufficient time to obtain a Canadian Study Permit and Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), make travel arrangements, select academic courses, order uniforms and textbooks. 

Please refer to the following admission requirements.

  • Admission Interview
    • The Admissions Team will conduct an interview with the applicant and parents via Zoom video conference.
    • The Character Skills Snapshot by EMA is preferred, but not mandatory.
Decision of Enrolment
Approximately two weeks after the completion of the admission interview, the Enrolment Team will inform the applicant of the School’s decision. An Offer of Admission may be made to the applicant. The parents are invited to review the Enrolment Contract. Should the applicant and parents accept the offer, the parents will be required to sign the contract, make full payment of the Boarding Student Fee and one-time New Student Registration Fee. 

Upon receiving the signed contract and full payment, a Confirmation of Enrolment Letter will be issued to the student and parents. 

Once the student is enrolled, the Enrolment Team will support the student and parents to prepare for international travel and for attending SJK in the new school year.
