How Can I Transfer Into CAG From Another School Calendar Year?

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.
