Admission to Secondary 1
Online applications for secondary 1 for the school year 2020-2021 are now closed.
1. Secondary 1 entrance exam
The selection of candidates is based primarily on an analysis of applicants’ Grade 4 and Grade 5 report cards. For this reason, there is no need to prepare for the admission sessions. Candidates will simply participate in educational workshops and write a short text in order to evaluate their competency in written French.
Important: only candidates who have been preselected following the analysis of their report cards will be invited to the admission sessions.
