d) High School courses can be taken either by semester or annually. Full year candidates take preference. Applications per semester are subject to space.

 

2. Psychology, Health and Ethics

Programs, activities and schedules are designed to achieve harmonious development among students. For this reason candidates are required to be in good physical and mental health. Poor health may limit admission chances.

 

3. Family Support

Parents of children admitted are asked to support the school’s moral formation by encouraging their child to comply with the standards and regulations of each academy. They are further asked to supply and complete accurate records for each candidate. Falsification of documentation will be grounds for their registration to be rejected and cancelled.

 

4. School Credit

Although it is important that all candidates maintain a positive attitude during their school courses, it is indispensable that all courses taken in previous school periods be accredited. Students will not be allowed to repeat passed or failed school courses.

Our educational centers’ reputation for academic excellence requires that all candidates maintain an average grade of 85% to be considered for admittance. The following table expresses minimum overall average by country that a student must have reached to be eligible for admission.

Additionally, some academies, namely Le Châtelard and Everest, require English proficiency as a requirement for admission into the annual course.

In all cases, the Board of Directors has the final decision upon a candidate’s acceptance and his/her temporary or definitive rejection.

5. Acceptance

The academy will send written acknowledgement by fax, e-mail or ordinary mail once the candidate has met the full requirements for admission. Incomplete admission applications will not be considered. Payment of the admission application fee and the full or partial advance payment for the selected courses does not guarantee a candidate´s acceptance.

After a candidate’s full documentation has been received, parents will receive the Acceptance Terms and Conditions booklet.  They must sign and return it to acknowledge that they have read and understood all information. Once returned, the admission application enters the review process, at which time the candidate is considered for admittance.
