Elementary School Information

Lester B. Pearson School for the Arts holds a Selections Workshop for Admission into our school, which starts in Grade 4.  If your child is currently in Grades 3-7 and is thinking about coming to our Selections process, we will hold an in-person Information Night near the end of November 2024 @ 7:00 PM, starting in the Pearson Gymnasium.

The Online Application opens on our website Thanksgiving weekend and it closes at the end of January annually. There is a fee to participate in  the workshop which will be made available on SchoolCashOnline after your registration form is submitted online. Students currently in grades 4 - 7 can still apply for admission but will participate in a workshop and are placed on a waiting list.  If Pearson has a student leave the school, we offer the student 1st on the waitlist of the appropriate grade the spot and carry on until we fill the position.

Students will participate in Art, Music, Dance and Drama during the Selections Workshop. They will be evaluated by a combination of teachers and professionals in each area and given a score based on those observations. There is nothing to prepare for these workshops. Just come ready to participate! There may be a virtual portion of the process by uploading videos from a google email account!  

Registration will open Thanksgiving weekend for the 2025/2026 school year and closes January 31st, 2025

Thank you for your interest.
