Release the spark; Honour the quirk; Cultivate the joy; Commit to the risk; Invite the doubt; Encourage the love; Inspire the quest; Find the beauty; Become the solution" ... These are words on the stairs at The Booker School and when I first read them I knew I had enrolled my son in the absolute best school for him. They are not just words on stairs, they actually come to life everyday on this school’s campus through skilled teachers who encourage, support, and celebrate inquiring minds. Their integrated, inquiry based curriculum makes learning tangible and tied to real world. It’s a place that truly transforms its learners ❤️ I see this everyday in my son and I am confident that long after he has graduated from Booker this transformation will continue, grow, and evolve ... Love this school & its faculty!

A Parent's Perspective

Cohorts for 2023-24

(Oct 2023 Update)

The Elementary School

The Early Years (Pre-Primary)

We take students turning four by September 1 or those showing school 'readiness' into our Early Years program in a part- or full-time capacity. See our Early Years page for more information. We are down to our last available position to join us for this academic year!

The Middle School

We currently have up to five spaces in our Grade 6 cohort for this Academic Year. Our current Grade 6 cohort is made up of seven students and embraces our Middle School model with a number of different teachers.

Thank you for considering The Booker School as a place for your child. 

We have a rolling registration approach to admissions, and welcome applications throughout the school year. Fees are pro-rated for students that join later in the academic year 

 

To know if the Booker is the right choice for your child, we encourage you to meet with the Head and tour the school, observe the staff and ask any questions you may have about the program. We’re happy to speak with you about what you want for your child, as well as the financial considerations involved in attending an independent school like The Booker School.

Additionally, we encourage children to Stay-a-Day so that they can meet fellow students and get a sense of the school's culture and routines. Time is usually taken during a Stay-a-Day to have a teacher quietly assess the child so that we have a sense of where he or she is academically and socially. We can also arrange for a private assessment.

Invest Now for the Future

Although the International Baccalaureate program is sometimes considered ‘elite’, regular students who have the opportunity to begin their early education in an inquiry-based school like ours are finding that the Diploma is not a difficult goal to achieve.

Those students who obtain an IB Diploma in grades 11-12 generally receive advanced placement in Canadian universities, which is a substantial cost saving. Additionally, IB graduates are sought out and frequently receive substantial scholarships that they are better able to maintain throughout their university career than non-IB graduates.

The Booker School is soon to be in the Consideration Phase of the International Baccalaureate accreditation process and our program is well developed with experienced IB Leadership and Teachers.

Start in the Early Years

We know from research that the first years of a child’s development are the most critical. The brain develops faster here than at any other point in life.

However, learning how to learn is no different than learning how to play hockey or speak a second language or play a musical instrument – it must begin early in order to truly master skills.

We also know that the quality of that learning experience does impact profoundly on a child’s potential. The earlier a child is engaged the greater opportunity they have to fulfil their individual potential and take their place in the world.

We recognise that the best people to spread the word about our school are the families that are in it. When you enrol at The Booker School, we provide you with a number of "Ambassador Cards'. Should you recommend us to another family and they present that card upon enrolment, you will receive a 10% discount on one of your child's tuition fees for that academic year. Should further students enrol and present your family's Ambassador Card, you receive 10% accordingly.
