Application Process

Throughout the admissions process, we will get to know each other, and we will assess how we can best support your child to ensure their success at TanenbaumCHAT. For more information on applying see the link below.

Step 1: Submit an Application
Our application deadline for new student entry in September 2024 has passed. The application deadline was December 1, 2023. Applications received after the deadline will be placed into a waitpool and will only be reviewed in May 2024. A non-refundable late fee of $500 will apply and we cannot guarantee that space will be available. Applications for new student entry in September 2025 will be available in the fall. If you would like information about our waitpool, please feel free to contact us at
Step 2: Write Placement Tests

Placement tests are a required part of the application process. Each future TanenbaumCHAT student will write tests in English, Math, and Hebrew. Students entering the New Stream program are not required to write the Hebrew test. We use the tests to help us determine class placement and abilities.

We must be in receipt of a completed application prior to writing placement tests.

Step 3: Interview

Once your application is reviewed and all necessary documents have been provided, we will get in touch to schedule an interview. The student and at least one parent or guardian must attend. No preparation is required. Interviews take place between October and February. 

Step 4: Decision

Offers of Acceptance are sent via email in February. Offers must be signed and returned to the school with the confirmation deposit to secure your child's place. For more information on the Admissions Process, please complete an inquiry form and we will be happy to help!
