Step 4: Complete Assessments

All applicants from Early Explorers to Grade 12 go through an evaluation process by our Principal teams. This is based on all information provided during the application process.

For Grades KG – Grade 12 your child may be asked to take part in an English Assessment. This covers their skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing. An admission decision will only be made after your child completes these evaluations.

KG – Grade 5

EAL needs will be assessed to ensure adequate support is available and that a proper balance of EAL students to native English speakers is maintained within the school.

Grade 6 – Grade 12

Students will be given an appointment for an English Assessment either online or in person depending on the student’s location. The benchmark for entry into the grade level must be met.

Step 5: Application Review

The relevant Section Principal reviews applications and provides a recommendation for admission.

After a positive recommendation, a place is offered to the student. To secure the place the Parent Agreement and Admissions Fee must be completed.

Step 6: Acceptance

An official acceptance email will be issued confirming your child’s enrollment and grade placement.

The final documents required to complete the Admissions process are the ISHCMC Medical Form and vaccination records.
