Grade Listings & Placement

Stamford follows an August 31st birth date cut off for the academic year. For example, if your child was born on October 5th, 2012 your child will be in Grade 2 for the 2020-2021 academic year. Please see the table below to match your child’s date of birth with the appropriate grade. Currently, Stamford is accepting applications for mid-year entry (2020/2021) for Pre-primary to Grade 10. We also accept applications for 2021/2022 and beyond and process applications in priority of application date.
