How to Apply

Admissions Process


All kids are unique and special. Because our goal is to develop students of great character, our admissions process is set up to consider your child as a whole person, not just a potential student. To ensure that your child will thrive at Southridge, we look at a variety of criteria, including: participation in extra-curricular activities, academic record, citizenship, motivation, determination and resiliency.

We understand that your child's education is a very important decision for your family and our goal is to do everything we can to make the process of applying as stress-free as possible.

For your convenience, we are pleased to offer an online application process.
