Admission Policies

We accept applications throughout the year. Our school year starts in August and ends in June, divided in 4 terms. Our admissions is on a first-come, first-served base, whereby transferring the application fee is saving the seat for your child.

Decisions regarding admissions can only be made once the process is complete.  In order to complete the process, all documentation must be received by the school.

The school will admit students who can benefit from the education offered. A child will only be admitted if the school can offer a program that will meet his or her individual needs. This will be discussed with parents at the initial stages of application process prior to any formal application being made or accepted.
