Thank you for your interest in Turnbull School!
We welcome you to visit our school throughout the year and see it live! Please choose the option that you prefer:

Meet with the Registrar

Meet individually with the Registrar, Rachel Fabich. A tour is an excellent way to learn about our school, please call 613-729-6099, ext. 212, or send an email to rfabich@turnbull.ca to schedule one.

Attend an Admissions Information Session

We offer one or two morning sessions during the school year. These sessions include a slide show presentation from the Director and Principals, providing in-depth information about our school and its distinguishing features to help you with your decision. This is followed by a tour of the school to see the classes in action, then a chance to chat informally with some current parents, teachers and the leadership team. Any upcoming sessions will be featured on our home page.

Turnbull School offers comprehensive and enriching programs at all grade levels, creating authentic and stimulating learning experiences for every student. Our classroom expectations focus on positive relationships and each child giving his or her personal best.

Application Process

adm1Along with your first meeting, the admission’s process is intended to give you a chance to learn as much as possible about the school, so you can make an informed decision, and also for the school to ensure our program is a good fit for your child.

Applications are received throughout the year and successful candidates are offered placements on an ongoing basis once the admission steps are completed. The Registrar will be happy to review these with you.

Our Admissions Committee meets regularly as each step in the application process is completed, and we keep in close contact with you throughout to answer any questions and to assist you. A decision about acceptance is made as soon as possible, based on the results of the above steps and the availability of openings in the school.

If you have any questions, please call the Registrar, Rachel Fabich, at
613-729-6099, ext. 212 or email her.

We look forward to learning more about your child.
