The Application Fee is $150.  Transcripts of marks, teacher recommendations and proof of English Language proficiency are required (e.g. IELTS, TOEFL, KET, PET etc.)

Home Stay arrangements are available for all international students. Upon request we will forward a questionare and Home Stay agreement to be filled out and signed by parents, students and Home Stay families.

After having received all application documents a Skype meeting with the family and the teachers will be arranged to assess a good academic and social fit with the student and the school. After the Skype meeting the teachers will make a recommendation as to acceptance.

A Letter of Acceptance will be issued within one week of a successful Skype meeting.
