Admission Process
Below is a step-by-step overview of our Admission process.

  1. Complete the application packet
    The following materials must be received by the school before an admissions application can be reviewed. No application can be reviewed until this process is completed. 
  •   A completed "Application for Admission" form.
  • Parent Confidential Form
  • Confidential School Report form (To be completed by a designated official from your child's current/previous school).
  • Copy of student's passport or birth certificate.
  • A signed enrollment contract and Parent-Student-School Agreement.
  • Payment of an approved application fee.
  • Copies of any standardized test scores (optional).


Note: The Admission Office will only accept a fully completed application package before it will start the admission process. All the application documents required must come in one e-mail. Hand delivered applications must also be fully complete. Any application submitted that is not complete will be rejected. The only requested document which may come in a separate e-mail directly from the current school of the student(s) is the Confidential School Report Form

2. Testing/Interviews/Screening
All applicants seeking entry into the school may go through screening/interview.

Screening interviews for pre-kindergaten to grade 5 applicants are scheduled after a review of the application and school records by the Admission Committee.
Testing and/or interviews for grade 6-9 applicants are scheduled after a review of the application and school records by the Admission Committee.
The testing/screening has several components that may be mandatory for entrance such as English language skills and mathematics, a writing sample, reading etc.
Please note that results of screening/interviews/testing may take up to 48 hours (two working days). In some cases, results may be reviewed prior to a new student's start of school. We encourage families to avail themselves at their earliest convenience.  Final placement will be based upon review of screening/interviews/testing results and educational history of the child. The Admission Office will contact you both for scheduling and to announce the final admission decision to you before start of school.

3. Admission Decision
As general practice, admission decisions are completed after the applicant has taken the appropriate screening/interviews/testing, as needed. However, the School may make early decisions about admission based on receipt and review of school records indicating satisfactory academic performance and behavior, and other supporting documentation as requested. The final admission decision will be conveyed to the parents, by the Admission Office, as soon as possible.

4. Orientation of New Families (parents and students)
The Admission office conducts orientation programs for new families at the beginning of a new school year and also at the beginning of the first term. Students who are admitted when the school year has already started also receive customized orientation from their class teachers., after they pick up a welcome packaged from the Advancement Office.

Other Important Application Information
PLEASE NOTE: Once a place is offered, the pupil must enroll and pay tuition in order to hold the place for immediate entry within the school's calendar year. Enrolled students may not be absent more than 10 days from the start of their enrollment. A family cannot defer a student's entry for the next school year without reapplying and submitting the necessary documentation and application fee.
