Update for 2022/2023 out-of-catchment applicants: cross-catchment is open from just Feb 3rd through 8th. for applications for the 2023/2024 school year. Cross-catchment decisions go out first week of March. Accepted families will receive a letter from Gleneagle on March 6th with instructions on choosing courses for grade 9 through your MyEd account. You will choose your electives as if you are not in a JumpstArt program. Then in April, when we have determined who is accepted to JumpstArt, we will adjust your course selection as needed. Remember that you will only be considered for JumpstArt if you complete this online application form by Friday, March 10th!
