Admissions And Registration

Information and Application to Grade 9

TCDSB Admission Policies


Grade 8 students who apply to Bishop Allen Academy will be admitted, if space is available. However, in recent years, the number of applications to Bishop Allen Academy has exceeded the number of spaces available; thus, it has not been possible to admit all applicants. In general, applicants whose elementary schools are closest in proximity to Bishop Allen Academy are given offers of admission.

Proximity is not a factor in admission to the Congregated Advanced Placement program at Bishop Allen Academy. Please refer to the section on the selection criteria and application process for admission to the Congregated Advanced Placement program. All motivated, high achieving students, regardless of geographic area, are invited to apply.

Admission to the French Immersion program is offered to those students who have completed an elementary early French Immersion program ( SK to Grade 8 ). Admission to the French Extended program is offered to students who have completed the elementary middle French Immersion program.

If a student is not offered admission to the regular Ontario program at Bishop Allen Academy due to over subscription, the redirection process begins, with every student being offered an alternative placement at the closest TCDSB secondary school that still has available space. The student then has the option of accepting the redirection or remaining on the waiting list for Bishop Allen.
