Admissions

Book a Tour

All families interested in RVS are asked to take a tour of our school and meet our Director of Admissions to discuss our programs, learn about your child, and commence the enrollment process.

We invite you to tour the school to get a feel for our community and spirit. During your visit we will discuss our programs and how they fit with your child. Tours are best scheduled during school hours to allow parents and their children an opportunity to observe programs and the caliber of instruction and educational programs we offer.

Application for Admission

In addition to the application, the following is required prior to an admission decision:

  • Payment of $150.00 application fee (non-refundable)
  • Copies of recent report cards (if school-aged)
  • Copies of any assessments related to the students emotional, behavioural, medical or learning needs (if applicable)

Enrolling your Child

At River Valley School academic testing is not required as part of the admissions process. We believe young children are capable and that they learn in many different ways. It’s our job to find out how they learn, what they enjoy and what steps need to be taken and – sometimes retraced – to fully master a level of learning before embarking on the next. No one is pushed forward or held back at River Valley School.

Admission into any of the programs at River Valley School is based on several factors, the most important of which is knowing that you have found the right place for your child.

River Valley School does not have formal academic testing for admission. Previous evaluations, classroom visits and conversations with teachers and staff will ensure a fit for both the family and the school.

Fees

River Valley School is a private school and therefore parents are required to pay for a portion of the cost of their child’s education.

Tuition can be paid via the following methods:

  • Cheque (lump sum or post-dated monthly)
  • Automatic withdrawal (pre-authorized payment)
  • Visa/Mastercard via Plastiq (subject to a processing fee charged by Plastiq)
