Enrolment at River Valley School

At River Valley School academic testing is not required as part of the admissions process. It’s our job to find out how a student learns, what they’re passionate about and what steps need to be taken to ensure that they will flourish academically and socially. Following the completion of the online application and receipt of the application deposit, our Admissions team will review your child’s educational history and other relevant documents to prior to enrolment.


* Please note : River Valley School is not a designated special needs school.

We are limited by our facilities and expertise, so are unable to provide for children with medical fragility and moderate to severe developmental, emotional, behavioral and oppositional defiance disorders.

International students – River Valley School is happy to welcome international students, however they must be residing in Canada with a parent or legal guardian. We do not offer boarding or a homestay program.
