Families will be given the opportunity to schedule a personal online interview after we receive all the required documents, excluding reports from this year that have yet to be released. Formal interview preparation is not encouraged. Applicants for Grades 1-4 will be interviewed with their parents.

5. Complete the Entrance Assessments.
(Grades 1 - 6)
Applicants will be required to complete an assessment, which will be held on Saturday, January 15, 2022. Assessments will cover grade level literacy and numeracy expectations, as well as a small group activity.

Applicants must write the Secondary Schools Admissions Test (SSAT) and complete the Character Skills Snapshot, through SSAT. Families are required to register online at ssat.org. The SSAT may be written anytime up until the end of January. Please ensure that St. Clement's School is selected as a score recipient when registering. For the 2021-2022 Admissions Season the SSAT is available to be taken at home, at Prometric Test Centres, or may be offered in person at different sites around the GTA. Please visit ssat.org to learn more.
