Application Process

Applications from Ontario grades 7 & 8 students are accepted online, two times per year. The next round of applications has been postponed until further notice.

There are three steps to the online application process as follows: 

Step 1 - Register: to register, go to the Page Portal and Sign up now.  Enter your own individual email address (only use a Microsoft or Google email; family or school emails are not accepted), and click Send verification code - enter the code that you received in your email, and click verify code. Enter and confirm your password.

Step 2 - Create Profile: to create your profile, you must enter your personal information (address, birth date, telephone number, email) and add your parent/guardian information.

Step 3 - Start Application: complete the application form and include your essay submission. You must enter your school information (address, phone number, school principal) and write your essay (750 words max.), answering the following questions: Essay Questions:

  1. What experiences, achievements (academic, athletic, volunteer) and activities have you been involved in at school, at home or in the community that demonstrate your leadership, responsibility and interpersonal skills?
  2. Why are you an ideal candidate and what unique characteristics would you bring to the program? (hint: use specific examples to support your application)

Review your essay carefully and then click Final Submit. After this step, you will no longer be able to make any more changes to your essay. 

What happens next? Once you've submitted your essay, your school principal and homeroom teacher will each receive an online Consent Form to fill out.  After we receive their completed consent forms, your application will be considered. The selection process will begin after the application deadline has lapsed.
