When is the Cutoff Date?
The cutoff date for each grade is December 31. If your child is coming from a school where the cutoff date is on or before September 30th and his/her birthday is between October 1st and December 31 (i.e., your child will skip a grade), the interview with the Admissions Team will help determine the best grade for your child to enter.
