FAQ

DOES BROCKTON HAVE INTAKE YEARS?

Brockton School has main intake years at Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten. Given the school is strategically adding sections at specific grade levels, applications will be accepted across all grades. 


How many students per class?

Brockton School has the following target class sections and sizes: 

  • Junior Kindergarten: 2-3 sections of 6-8 students for a target of 16 or 24 students
  • Kindergarten: two sections of 14 - 16 students
  • Grade 1-3: two sections of 18 - 20 students
  • Grade 4-6: two sections of 20 - 22 students
  • Grade 7: two sections of 22 - 24 students
  • Grade 8-12: two sections of 22 - 24 students

A target class size does not mean a maximum class size, although the school does recognize the value of a small class compared to a large class.  

Class sizes may vary depending on the candidate pool and the composition needs/desires of the respective class. 

 

DOES BROCKTON ADMIT STUDENTS PART-WAY THROUGH THE YEAR?

Dependent on space we do admit students part-way through the year if the circumstances are right.

 

WHAT DOES THE ASSESSMENT ENTAIL AND HOW CAN WE PREPARE?

Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten: Students will meet with the early learning teachers in a small group, individual or virtual setting. The assessments typically includes a series of developmentally-appropriate activities and an observation period as students interact with those around them. Teachers are looking for developmental milestones, social-emotional readiness, and a good fit with the school/programme.

Grades 1-5: Students will meet with a member of the admissions team in either an individual, small group, or virtual setting to engage in a school-based assessment (primarily assessing age-appropriate social-emotional maturity, literacy, and numeracy skills). 

Grades 6-12: Students will meet with a member of the admissions team in either an individual, small group, or virtual setting to engage in a personal interview, a writing sample with prompt, and an assessment of thinking skills.

DOES MY CHILD HAVE TO TAKE THE SSAT?

No, Brockton does not require students to take the SSAT.

 

DO YOU ADMIT INTERNATIONAL STUDENT?

Yes.  Due to academic demands, applicants must be proficient in English. We do not offer a separate ELL Programme but provide language support to accommodate limited needs of our English language learners.

As Brockton is a day school, students must live with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s).

An International Student fee of $6500.00 will be charged to cover the cost of education not funded by the Province of BC. This fee applies if a student or parent is in Canada on a student or visitor visa. Students with Canadian citizenship or permanent residency and parents with work visas are eligible for regular tuition fees.

International Student Documentation Required: International students are required to provide a valid student visa from Immigration Canada. The School will issue the enrolment letter required for your visa application only after having accepted an offer of admissions and fees are paid in full.

DO YOU WORK WITH AGENTS AND EDUCATIONAL CONSULTANTS?

We consider the partnership of parent/guardian, student, and school to be integral to the success of the Brockton student. Families are encouraged to connect directly with our Admissions department for expectations, requirements and processes.
