Thank you for your interest in joining the Fulford Preparatory College family. We give careful consideration to every applicant. Each application is reviewed closely and considered both as a student and as a unique individual. We take into account your past achievements and look at your future potential for contribution to Fulford Preparatory College and the greater social good.


While admission to Fulford Preparatory College is on a rolling basis, the Admissions Office encourages students to begin the process during the fall and spring of the preceding academic year. We can process applications all throughout the year but it is encouraged that students apply ahead of time to allow at least four (4) to eight (8) weeks for the Canadian Visa and Study Permit application process.

Step 3: Official School Transcripts

Step 6: Entrance Exam

All applicants are required to complete an Entrance Exam.  The exam will be sent to you with instructions from our Admissions Office once the application form and application fee have been submitted.


Please Note: The steps of the Application Process may be executed in any order once the application form and application fee are received. Once we receive all of the above six (6) admissions requirements, the selection committee will review and evaluate your application. The committee will make a decision with 24 hours of receiving the final application requirement, and within 48 hours you will be notified of the selection committee’s decision.
