Our
APPLICATION process

We recommend that parents who are interested in learning more about Janus Academy call the school or e-mail contact@janusacademy.org to set up a school tour and ask any questions they may have. Tours are scheduled for the first Wednesday at 9:30 AM and last Wednesday at 2:15 PM of each month. Being able to see the school and its classrooms first hand, allows parents and professionals to get a feel for the learning environment Janus Academy creates for its students. Once you have viewed the school, the first phase of the application process involves submitting an application form, which can be downloaded from the link below. There is no fee to apply.

Applications for the upcoming school year are accepted from September to January. Applications are then reviewed and considerations are made in the areas of space availability and in instructional and behavioral profiles of existing and applying students. If the intake team believes that Janus Academy is able to effectively meet an applicant's needs, parents will be contacted to gain permission to schedule a school observation in their current placement. For those parents outside of the Calgary area we would ask that a short video be sent in place of the in person observation. Once our observation of your child is completed, we will contact you with the next steps in the process. Final decisions on acceptance will be made by the end of May.

Does Janus Academy have a Waitlist?

Due to the specialized educational placement all of our students require, we do not hold a traditional waitlist, nor do we have a first come first serve practice. Our school and classroom design requires that students being accepted into the program meet specific requirements and skill levels that fit the current openings. Each classroom is designed for specific educational and behavioural supports and therefore only students who would benefit from those supports will be accepted into that specific classroom.

What do I do if my child was not accepted but I would like to apply for the following year?

Applications will not automatically transfer from one year to the next. You must resubmit a new application each year during the application period from September to January, to be considered for new yearís intake. Applications received after the January deadline may be accepted, if spots are available. Please contact the school for more information.

Applications can be mailed, emailed or faxed (403-693-2345) to the school.
