PYP Admissions

Admission to the Primary Years Programme 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Enrollment at Acadecap International School (Académie de la Capitale) may be done at any time of the year,  provided the student has been accepted and all admission requirements have been met.  

The admissions process begins with completing an application to the school. It carries an  Application Fee of $175, paid upon submitting the application.  

Following the application and prior to acceptance, an assessment will be done for each student where the student must spend one day (*1) at the school to be evaluated in terms of willingness and ability to participate in the inquiry and to learn independently as well as cooperatively. This visit day is included in the application fee. 

The following documents must also be remitted to the Registrar on the day of the visit.  

A copy of the student’s last report card, 

Any report impacting on the teaching and learning of your child  

ADDITIONAL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

The visit day will be followed by a meeting/interview with the director, the parents/guardian and the student to review the student’s day of visit and discuss the teacher observations.  

Students entering Grade 1 and up must submit a recommendation from the previous homeroom teacher,  subject teachers, counselor and/or director. Please refer to section VI – Feedback on the Learner. (*2)

During Covid-19 students in grade 1-6 are asked to submit the feedback on the learner form.

Once all admission requirements have been met, a letter of acceptance/ refusal will be issued to the applicant and his/her parents/guardian. Once a place is offered to a prospective student, parents will be required to sign a  contract and pay a one-time only, non-refundable $500 Family Membership Fee. A child’s place is only assured once this is settled. 

Parents will also be required to sign other school schedules and provide additional documents such as copy of the child’s birth certificate, passport and immunization records, in order to complete the enrollment process.  

We pride ourselves for our superior academic standards, as well as our commitment to develop well-rounded individuals. We are highly committed to our students’ success and we expect a comparable commitment from them. Upon their acceptance to the school, it is essential that students understand and respect this commitment by signing the Acadecap International School (Académie de la Capitale) Agreement to Reach for the  IB Learner Profile.
