We understand that choosing the right high school for your daughter is a big decision, so please let us know how we can help during the admissions process.
Step 1 – TBY Visiting Day
The Admission Process typically begins with our TBY Visiting Day for girls in Grade 8. All prospective girls’ elementary schools are contacted and given a Permission Form for their parents’ signature. This form has the Visiting Day date for the school as well as other pertinent information. Visiting Day is a great opportunity for the girls to experience “a day in the life of a Tiferes girl”. They have the opportunity to meet the faculty, student body, sample some classes and ask questions about Tiferes Bais Yaakov.
Step 2 – Open House
Our Open House Evening, Sunday, November 22, 2020, is for parents of Grade 8 students. This evening is all about helping parents make an informed decision about the best place to send their daughters. The program includes an address from our principals, an Alumna, a current student. Prospective parents have the opportunity to tour the school and all of its many resources.
Step 3 – Entrance Exam
On Sunday, November 29, 2020 and Sunday, December 6, 2020, the Entrance Exam will be administered at Tiferes Bais Yaakov for all girls who would like to apply.
