Important Dates to Remember:

Attention Grade 8 and 9 Applicants:

*The application process for the 2023-2024 school year will open in the fall. Please check the TDSB website for updates including the admission process and important dates. The school board trustees and superintendents have made changes to the application process for all TDSB specialized programs for the 2023-2024 school year. Some of the changes include a centralized online application at the board level, interest based applications, and a random lottery selection process instead of entrance tests and report cards. (If you have questions about the new TDSB policy please contact your local school trustee or superintendent.)

Please check this section of the website for updates throughout the application process. We will post information as we receive it from the TDSB central office.

The MaCS Program at W.L. Mackenzie C.I. operates under the authority of the Toronto District School Board (TDSB). MaCS is required to follow all TDSB policies and procedures for a specialized program within the TDSB. In line with the Toronto District School Board’s Equity Policy, the MaCS program is committed to increasing the representation of historically underserved communities including Black, Indigenous and racialized students.  

Note: Grade 8 students who receive and accept an offer but do not attend a TDSB school will be required to provide documentation for proof of residence for the purposes of registration, confirming residence in the City of Toronto.
