The school has the right to deny admission to any student candidate / La Escuela tiene el derecho de negar la admision a cualquier alumno candidato.

The process of reviewing admission documents is confidential and only authorized school personnel have access to these files.

Examinations and their results are school property and are for internal use only.


If the student is admitted, the Admissions Office will communicate the steps to follow for the registration process and the payments that need to be made.

Some levels have a limited number of vacancies and the school will only admit those students who are best prepared and who are idealcandidates for our school.

Our performance standards cannot be ignored. Even if vacancies exist, a student will not be admitted if they do not meet the basicrequirements for admittance.

The School does not have the necessary resources to admit students with special needs.


We hope that this visit, while we work with your children), is a pleasant one. Our Office of Admissions and Student Records is here to help. Be sure to ask them for any needed clarification about this process. It is a pleasure to assist you.
