Admission Process

Akiva, a premier Jewish elementary school in Westmount is a unique educational institution committed to a whole child approach to academic excellence. With a varied cultural and religious parent body, we welcome application submissions from families seeking excellence in secular and Jewish studies.

Priority for admission is given to siblings and alumni of Akiva School. Admission decisions also reflect our commitment to creating classes that reflect an appropriate balance of boys and girls and ensuring everyone in our community share the same school mission and values.

 Admission Process for new families/children entering kindergarten:

The official registration process for kindergarten begins 2 years before the child’s entry into school. We encourage parents to attend our Open House presentation to find out more about our school.

To apply, please submit a completed and signed admissions application form. There is a $50 application fee paid by cheque made out to Akiva School.

Please be sure to read the form carefully and include all necessary documentation. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

 Following the submission of your application the Admissions Coordinator will contact you to schedule an interview with members of our administrative team including the Head of School.

Accepted families will be notified by our admissions coordinator and need to bring in a non-refundable  $200 deposit applied toward their child’s kindergarten tuition.
