Admissions Process

For the most up to date information and dates, please visit the VSB website (further details can be found here)

1. Attend the Tupper Mini School Information Night on October 22nd, 2020. This will most likely be a virtual event but stay tuned for further details. The time is TBA.

2. Apply to Tupper. Pick up an application package from the Tupper office (not available at this time) or download the application package online. Please use a blue or black pen when filling out your application. Along with your application, please attach a photocopy of your final Grade 6 report card and a photocopy of your most recent Grade 7 report card, along with any other pertinent academic documents or reference letters. Return the application package to the Tupper Office when completed. Please note: we cannot accept electronically submitted applications. 

Application deadline: . December 17th, 2020 by 3 PM

3. Apply online for the free District Cognitive Skills Test through the Vancouver School Board's website between October 22nd and November 5th, 2020. Remember to provide your Personal Education Number (PEN) when applying online (see your teacher or MyEd BC for your PEN number). This step is extremely important — without the District Cognitive Skills Test, your application to Tupper Mini School will not be considered. When ranking your program choices on your test application, be sure to put your first choice first. First choice candidates are considered before second and third choice candidates. Your ranking matters!

4. Write the District Cognitive Skills Test on November 17th, 2020. Students in the Tupper family of schools will write the test at Tupper — even if you live out of catchment. We want all students to feel comfortable with the peers they are enrolled with, so this applies across the district. Ask your elementary school administration if you are unsure.
