Important Information - New Students arriving August 2018

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We look forward to welcoming new students to Southern Ontario Collegiate for the 2018/19 academic year. Below please find some information to help you prepare for registration.

Registration and Placement Tests

Registration for new students will take place on August 15, 16 and 17, 2018 (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday). New students should arrive at the school office with their passport, copies of transcripts and immunization records, as well as current contact information to complete the registration process.

Placement tests will take place on each of these days at:

- 10:00 - Math (and ESL, only for students whose first language is not English) and

- 12:30 - English literature

Placement tests for those students who arrive after August 17 will be scheduled around the same hours in the opening week of the semester. If you have questions, please contact us at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Travel Information for Students

It is very important that the school is provided with full travel details for students arriving in Canada, including name of airline, airport departure date and time, expected arrival date and time and the correct terminal at Toronto Pearson International airport. Also provide details of any stopovers. Please forward this to us at least one week in advance of the flight in order that we have sufficient time to arrange airport pick up and home stay.

In addition, please let us know of any delays or changes to flight schedules that may occur en route. Drivers will not be able to remain at the airport indefinitely; the more accurate information you can provide, the better are we able to support arriving students.

For those parents who will be accompanying theirs wards to Canada, please find below links to some of the hotels closest to the school. We recommend that you book early as the demand for hotels is pretty high at this time of the year.

Staybridge Hotel and Suites:

Homewood Suites By Hilton:

Sheraton Hotel:

Hamilton Plaza:

Days Inn:

There is always the option of Airbnb if you are going to be here for more than one week; it is probably more cost effective, and use of the kitchen is likely to be available if you are renting the whole apartment. The website is:
