Admission Process

We understand that selecting a school for your child is an important decision. Thank you for your interest in The Toronto Heschel School.

Our admission process includes the following steps:

1. Come and visit

We encourage you to join us for a private tour or for an Open House to see for yourself what a Heschel education could mean for your child. Please contact the admissions office at 416-635-1876 ext. 334 or email for further information.

2. Application Form and Fee

Please complete and submit the Application Form online, together with the Application Fee of $500 and all supporting documents, including report cards.

3. Parent Meeting and Student Visit

Depending on availability and eligibility, we may contact you to schedule a meeting between the parent(s) and the Head of School, as well as a time for the prospective student to visit Heschel. The purpose of the parent meeting and student visit is to ensure that the school is a good fit. Applicants to JK will be invited to take part in a JK playgroup with a small number of other JK applicants. Student visits are not required for Preschool applications.

4. Admission Decision

Through our admission process, we liaise closely with applicants and their parents. Admissions decisions are based on various factors, including the best interests of the child and his/her family, and the school’s guiding principles. We will notify you in writing whether your child is being offered admission. For students entering JK, the admission process is expected to be completed by the end of January preceding their entry. For students entering other grades, it is beneficial to apply before the end of April to ensure there is ample time to complete the admissions process.

5. Deposit

Upon acceptance, the Application Fee of $500 will be applied as a deposit towards the tuition fee for the year of entry. No refund will be available after an Offer of Admission has been issued. If we do not admit your child to The Toronto Heschel School, for any reason, the $500 Application Fee will be refunded to you, less a credit card administrative fee of 3%.

6. Tuition Assistance

We are committed to removing financial barriers for families who choose to provide their child(ren) with a Heschel education. Applications for Day School Scholarships are available after a student has received an Offer of Admission at Any questions about tuition assistance should be addressed to Mark Abramsohn, Director of Business Operations, at 416-635-1876 ext. 225 or

Priority is given to applications for qualified siblings and children of staff, and then alumni, provided that applications for such children are received 12 months prior to the beginning of the school year of entry.
