Under a centralized admissions office, the intention of the School is to enroll students who meet all of the essential entrance requirements. The School will maintain rolling admissions, allowing applicants to be considered for acceptance throughout the school year and offered seats based on space available and complying with current class size policy, per the priority scale.
The School will provide equal opportunity for admissions consideration to, and in the treatment of, all applicants during the admissions process. Visitation screening/assessment for Pre-Kinder and Kinder is required for admission purposes. Other grade levels may require an internal or external standardized assessment administrated by a professional to determine the student’s academic grade level skills or other relevant skills needed to establish admissibility.
Qualified applicants coming from local school or schools on a different academic calendar will only be considered if the parents are willing to have their child audit their completed grade level. In special cases, the School will consider admission for 12th grade when a student has a history of academic and social excellence.
Qualified students will be considered for enrollment based on the following priority scale:
- Siblings of enrolled students who meet the admission criteria above
- Alumni children who meet the admission criteria above
- International children who meet the admission criteria above
- Other children who meet the admission criteria above
Note: Children applying for grades 6 – 12 must have grade level English and Spanish language proficiency and meet the academic requirements.
In the event enrollment at a grade level is at its capacity, the Admissions Office will maintain a wait pool. The wait pool is intended for the applying year only; all applicants that are interested in the following academic school year must re-apply. During times of large intake groups, qualified students will be considered for enrollment based on the priority scale.
NOTE: The school year begins in early August and ends in late May. Students who apply to begin in August from local Guatemalan schools or other countries with a different school calendar, such as Korea or Japan, generally continue in the grade in which they are currently enrolled. If these same applicants wish to begin in the middle of a school year, placement will be based on the grade they have most recently completed at their previous school.
