  • Admission to TCS is based on:
    • The candidate's academic record.
    • The candidate's performance on our aptitude tests or the SSAT.
    • The School's assessment of the candidate's character.
  • Trinity College School’s admissions offi ce 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.
