Information, resources, and services for

First-time Applicants

Admission to DES has been regarded as being competitive from the very beginning. The Admission & Review Committee (ARC) takes into consideration the applicant’s grade transcript from the previous school, demonstrated commitment to his/her school community, extracurricular or community activities, honours and awards, exceptional personal talents and other pertinent information. ARC is careful in its admissions selection not to ascribe too much value to any single metric, such as our admission standardized assessment, rank in class, or grade point average, to assess your child’s preparedness and potential.

ARC comprises of a select number of eminent faculty members from various departments and top administration representatives. These individuals read each applicant’s portfolio and make independent assessments that take into consideration a wide range of criteria so that no applicant’s strengths will go unrecognized or unappreciated. This admission system has resulted in creating DES classes that are motivated, energetic, and successful. We have achieved an 80% and higher class average and a 99% passing rate across all our grade levels thus placing our students in the top 10th percentile in the nation.

We seek to create, on our campus, a rich learning environment in which your child will meet individuals whose life experiences and world views differ significantly. We honour the belief that an educated person is one who is at home in many different environments, at ease among people from many different cultures, and willing to test his or her views against those of others. By selecting a wide range of applicants of varying potential, our admission process brands the learning environment at DES and thus increases the value of Delta education for you and your child.
