Student Selection

For information regarding the process of selecting students for the 2022-2023 academic year review the Application Form or see below:

75% of an applicant's OSA entrance score comes from the four grade 9 cumulative core subject marks that are submitted with the application.

25% of an applicant's OSA entrance score comes from the School Recommendation that is part of the application.

All of that data is compiled into a spreadsheet and students are then ranked based on the marks provided and school recommendation.  Approximately the top 120 students are invited to attend OSA in the fall. The exact number to be accepted is not yet confirmed as we work to maintain an overall school enrolment of 360 students.

The students selected for 2022-2023 based on the above information will receive a personal call. You will be asked to confirm your attendance at that time. If you require time to make your decision, you will be given 24 hours to respond or your position will be given to another applicant. The process of notifying applicants takes several weeks as we do not make calls during the day. You may hear from OSA up to and including April 9th as that is our deadline to notify applicants.

Students not selected for admission to OSA will receive an automated call instructing them to consider other quality schools within Edmonton Public.

Students seeking admission in their grade 11 year must follow exactly the same process, submitting grade 10 marks.  Admission at the grade 11 level is limited.  The number of positions cannot be determined until later in March.  The deadline to notify a student for admission in grade 11 is in early April.

International Students application will not be accepted.
