About Our Entrance Tests
Junior School (Grade 5-8)
Students applying to the Junior School will be asked to complete a reading comprehension activity, math questions and a writing sample. These will be completed on campus.
Senior School (Grade 9-12)
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 but not limited to the SSAT, TOEFL, CAT, MAPS, and Duolingo.
Applicants can also book a virtual test date to complete the OLSAT with a member of the admissions team. The OLSAT test is multiple choice and 40 minutes in length. It assesses both verbal and basic mathematical skills and varies based on the grade and age of the applicant. In addition, we ask the student to complete a short writing sample.
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.
