Virtual Admissions Center

Applications and Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year are now open and the process can be completed 100% online for most students.

During this time of Social Distancing and "Stay Home, Work Safe" due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we know it can be hard to continue a search for a private school education for your student. While we are not conducting in-person tours on our campus at this time, we have put this page together to give you a "Virtual Tour" of our school, resources to illustrate what makes The Banff School unique, and information on how to proceed with the Admissions process and become a member of our "Banff Family."

From a walkthrough of our campus, to videos of community events, theatrical productions from our PreK-12th grade and video recaps of Experiential Education Trips, this online view into our school will help you get to know about what we call "The Banff Difference."

Admissions Resources:

Virtual Admissions Process:

  1. Families interested in Enrollment should  complete our online application (which includes a non-refundable application fee).

  2. Once the initial application is submitted, additional required items  will be displayed as a virtual checklist within the online admissions portal. All items can be uploaded as documents or images online.

  3. Students entering Preschool through 1st grade will have an automatic acceptance (dependent on space availability) once a completed application has been received.

  4. Students entering 2nd-12th grade will have our normal admissions test waived if their prior report cards/transcripts show a B average or higher. Virtual/online Testing options are available for those that do not qualify for the test exemption.

  5. Students entering 2nd-12th grade will have an admissions decision made following a review of their completed application.

  6. Once accepted, the final step will be to digitally sign our Enrollment Contract and pay the tuition deposit.
