Outplacement Support

The Head of School, Assistant Head of School/Head of Upper School, Director of Outplacement, and MacArthur Campus Director comprise our Placement Team which plays vital guidance and advocacy roles for Grade 6 and Grade 8 students during this important process. They conduct meetings for parents of those students to outline available secondary school options, pointing out some of the differences among them; suggest questions to consider in relation to a specific child and his/her family; recommend a timetable for the process of investigation and application; and assiduously follow up with other schools on all applications.
