OSSD Admissions Criteria

We admit students on a case-by-case basis, looking at their overall history to truly understand the type of applicant in consideration. Typically, we require at least a 75% average with consistent grades over the last 3 years of study. English, Math and Science tend to carry heavier weight when considering applicants. In some cases, we ask for a written essay, study plan, or interview to allow applicants to explain their academic history and what they would like to achieve at Bronte College.

Advanced Placement (AP) Program Admissions Criteria

The Advanced Placement (AP) program offered at Bronte College is a highly challenging academic initiative designed to provide high school students with an outstanding opportunity to immerse themselves in university-level course materials. Developed by the College Board, this program was introduced in the United States in the 1950s and covers an extensive range of subjects, including mathematics, science, history, literature, and foreign languages.

The Advanced Placement Program is designed for candidates passionate about specific subjects and who value key skills such as critical thinking, time management, and a strong work ethic. Such students are highly encouraged to apply as they strive for excellence in their academic pursuits.

English Support Admissions Criteria

Pending results of the applicants’ English proficiency test (either submitted with their application or taken once the accepted student arrives at Bronte), we will place ESL students accordingly. For more information on the program and assessment, please contact our Admissions Department.
