A completed Poly application consists of multiple items. Use the checklist below to help keep track of the application requirements.

We would love to connect with your family if you have questions about the admissions process. Please reach out to us at any time.  Each year, we enroll new students in Nursery – Grade 12, thus the admissions process varies across grade levels.  It is important for us to get to know your child and your family.  We look forward to connecting with you.
