About Our Entrance Tests

Trinity College School’s admissions office uses standardized objective tests as one of its tools for evaluating the fit for potential students for our academic program. We will accept many types of tests for this application requirement, including the OLSAT which we use when meeting with applicants in person. Applicants can complete this test during an on-campus visit, in person with a visiting TCS representative in their home country or online through various platforms.

For students Grade 7-12, if you visit campus or meet with a TCS representative on the road, the applicant will complete the OLSAT. The OLSAT test is multiple choice and 40 minutes in length. It assesses both verbal and basic mathematical skills and varies based on grade and age of the applicant. In addition, we ask the student to complete a short writing sample. Students applying to Grade 5 and 6 complete a reading comprehension activity, math questions and a writing sample.

Other forms of assessment accepted include but are not limited to the SSAT, TOEFL, CAT, MAPS and Duolingo.

Trinity College School endeavours to make reasonable accommodations for students with identified learning needs who may require additional time provided the appropriate documentation is submitted to the School.
