4 – Our Admissions Committee will contact you with the formal admission decision
If a student is admitted, he will be placed in the grade for which he is applying if his previous school work, behavior, and admissions test results indicate that he is prepared to enter that grade. However, if through admissions testing results or other evidence, it is determined that the student is not adequately prepared for the grade for which he is applying, it may be necessary that he repeat the previous grade.
Regardless of whether the student is admitted to the grade for which he is applying or to the previous grade, it is often the case that tutoring is required prior to the start of the school year, and in some cases, continuing during the school year. Tutoring is usually required in English grammar and writing, as well as in Latin. This tutoring is not included in the standard tuition. Details on tutoring fees will be provided by the Admissions Committee at the time of acceptance.
5 – Secure Admission
If a student is admitted, a tuition deposit of the equivalent of one month’s tuition is required within two weeks of notification of admission. This tuition deposit will secure admission, is non-refundable, and will be credited toward May’s tuition.
