A completed application form needs to be submitted together with the student's complete school records (transcripts, teachers' letters), references, health certificates, proof of birth/citizenship, and results of any psychological or educational testing, (Note: failure to submit complete school records will result in delaying the admissions process.)
It is the duty of the parents/guardians to furnish the school with any additional pertinent information about the student, including but not limited to: results of standardized testing at previous schools, results of psychiatric or psychological evaluations, information about prescribed medication(s), any diagnosed behavioral or learning disorder, or physical limitation. Failure to provide this information may result in the student's suspension or dismissal from the school.
Once all of the documents have been submitted, a date will be set for the prospective student to take a placement test and to have a personal interview with the Admissions Committee. The student's parents/guardians will have a separate interview with the Committee as a requirement of the admissions process.
The Admissions Committee for the Early Childhood and Elementary School will be composed of the Head of School, Guidance Counselor, and the applicant's likely Homeroom Teacher. The Admissions Committee for the Secondary School will be composed of the Head of School, the High School Assistant Principal, and the Guidance Counselor.
The Admissions Committee meets regularly to review the results of the placement test. After considering student records from schools previously attended and all other pertinent information provided by the parents or any institution, the Committee will make a decision on admission and placement. Unanimous agreement must be reached within the Committee for a student to be admitted. The parents will then be called for a meeting to discuss the decision.
Certain students may be admitted on a probationary status, at the discretion of the Admissions Committee. The probationary period should not be less than 6 months. The Committee will review the student's performance every quarter, and meet with the parents/guardians to share the progress. The Committee will issue a final recommendation towards the end of the school year.
If a decision is made to admit a student who has experienced problems in a previous school, a behavior and/or academic contract may be written as a condition of admission.
