There are two different tracks for our Admissions process, Early Qualification and Rolling Admissions.


Early Qualification means that your student has been qualified for acceptance based on the grades and test scores you have provided. This is a conditional acceptance, as the student will need to sit for the Entrance Exam in order to complete the entire process.


Early Qualification Admissions Requirements: in order to be early qualified for the 2020-2021 school year, the following items must be completed by Friday, December 13, 2019.
