Mini Schools take students in Grade 8 through a test and interview/ or audition process.   Test marks are not given to parents or students.

The test for some Mini School's acceptance is on Nov. 21 and is for Grade 7 students only.  

To take the test you must register online from Oct. 27 to Nov. 9 only.  Come back to this page on Oct. 27 to register online. 

If you are not registered online you cannot take the test.  No exceptions.  Mark your calendars now to register your child for the test and hold Nov. 21 for the test.

If you are not attending a VSB school in grade 7, but live in Vancouver and are applying to a VSB mini, please note that you will be randomly assigned a test site and this will be included in your reply email AFTER you register for the assessment. 
Because there are some changes to reporting practices this year, not all students will be able to supply a Grade 7 report card by the Dec. 21st this year.
