There is no better way to truly get a sense of our school than to visit our classrooms, tour our campus and connect with our staff.  Our campus is open and welcoming visits throughout the year.

Suggested ways to visit:

1. Campus open day or generally inquiry

Visit our campus to gain an overview and understanding of our philosophy and educational system.  This is a great first step.

2. Personalized campus tour

Meet with our admissions team to learn more about what Saint-Charles offers for you.  Schedule your admissions interview at the same time as your visit and even your admissions exams while you are with us on campus.  We can arrange for a class visit or other experience to help determine if Saint-Charles is right for your family.

  • Admittance: students will be welcomed into the Saint-Charles family with a full welcome package and visa procedures

*There are times where a provisional acceptance will be offered if a student completes a period of language study to ensure they will thrive in our multilingual environment.

  • Waitlist:  we are impressed with your student but need to wait until we have space in their desired program
  • Non-acceptance: it is possible that Saint-Charles is not the right fit for your family’s goals in which case we will regretfully extend a non-acceptance.  Occasionally, a non-acceptance will include steps to take in order to reapply in a stronger position.
