International Admissions Process

Hillfield Strathallan College is a day school and Visa students typically reside with local families, chosen through a third party agency. 
 
Admission to HSC is not dependent on one single factor.  A committee considers information shared on the application – including academic records, test/assessment results and interview/school visit, as well as a student’s character, talent and leadership qualities. 

Should you have any questions regarding the online application or our admissions process, please contact the HSC Admissions Office at 905-389-1367, ext. 106 or Sheriann Heath-Johnston at heathsh@hsc.on.ca.
