Campus Visit Opportunities

Open House

Our open houses give visitors and prospective students the best feel for the Trinity College School community. These events provide the opportunity to tour the school and meet with the headmaster, faculty, and students as well as see different activities around campus. In addition, these days offer Senior School applicants the opportunity to write our entrance test (scroll down for more information on our aptitude tests) and to be interviewed. Our open houses begin at 10:00 a.m. and run until 1:00 p.m.

Junior School Open Doors (Grades 5-8)

Open Doors gives prospective Junior School (Grades 5-8) students and their parents, the opportunity to tour, observe classes and meet members of the Junior School community. While the Open Door program is somewhat different from our Open Houses events, it is a great alternative should you not be able to attend an Open House. These events run from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and registration is required. 

Senior School Spend a Day and Spend a Night (Grades 9-12)

Spend a Day and Spend a Night events give prospective students the chance to experience a day in the life of a TCS student. Visitors are hosted by one of our current students and attend classes, meet teachers and students and enjoy delicious food in Osler Hall. Students applying to our boarding program have the option of staying overnight in one of the residences.

Weekday Visit

If you are unable to attend one of our events listed above, we would be happy to arrange a visit, Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Please call the admissions office at 905-885-3209 or email us at to book your visit.

About Our Aptitude Tests

Trinity College School’s admissions office uses Canadian standardized objective tests as one of its tools for evaluating potential TCS students. These tests are neither pass-fail nor competitive. Each applicant’s results are evaluated on the basis of his or her current grade and age.

The test is 40 minutes in length. The verbal portion of the test deals with knowledge of vocabulary and the ability to use words correctly in sentences. The quantitative portion of the test assesses mathematical skills; questions are based on basic math principles (primarily addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and do not require advanced formulas. In addition, we ask the student for a writing sample.

The admissions committee also weighs the applicant’s school reports, interview performance, recommendations and desire to attend TCS.
