Student Enrolment Procedure

Trafalgar Castle School has a rolling application process; however, spaces fill very early.

The first step in the enrolment process for day students begins with a full-day visit, which provides prospective students the opportunity to experience life as a Trafalgar girl.

Following the day visit, students are to complete an online application package with the following:

  • Completed online application form;
  • Final report cards for the past two years;
  • A confidential teacher recommendation; and
  • Application fee.

The student’s application package is then assessed, and eligible candidates are invited in for an interview and an assessment. At this point, if the student is a successful candidate, an official letter of acceptance will be offered.

Trafalgar Castle School has been educating girls and young women for more than 140 years. Our day program attracts students from across Durham Region and the Greater Toronto Area, making up approximately two-thirds of our student population. The other third of our students are boarders who come to us from across Canada and countries around the world. Our day students benefit from Trafalgar Castle’s global perspective and make lifelong friendships with students from near and far.

Grade 4 coming to Trafalgar in 2018!

We are excited to be expanding our day program and welcoming even more girls to the Trafalgar community with the addition of Grade 4 in 2018. Our Grade 4 class will benefit from the same whole-school activities and warm community that make Trafalgar such a special place.
