Admissions Criteria

STMC is an open boundary Affiliate Independent Catholic High School within the RCAV and, therefore, has no identified schools with official feeder status. STMC accepts students from throughout the Metro Vancouver area. No applicant – regardless of category or historical connection to our school – should consider themselves an automatic entry into STMC.

While primary consideration is given to specific categories of applicants, admission offers are extended to all applicants based on the quality and strength of their application package, as well as the candidate’s and their family’s overall merits as prospective Knights.
