A similar dedication is expected of Macdonald-Cartier students.

Prior to acceptance, all students must successfully complete qualifying examinations. Normally these examinations are taken in the fall of the year prior to entrance. These examinations consist of standardized tests in English, mathematics and French. Students are expected to achieve a minimum of “grade-level” performance in the first two of these areas of evaluation. The standardized tests in French are used to ensure proper placement according to language ability. Preparation for these objective tests is not necessary.

Applicants must submit a copy of their most recent report card. (This should be forwarded with the completed application form.)
