Admission

Re-Enrollment

The School assesses students' progress on an ongoing basis, and evaluations are made in consultation with all teachers. Recommendations regarding advancement are given to students and parents at the end of each term. Recommendations are based on a student's age, and technical and physical development. The School takes into account that a child's body often changes considerably over time, as does his or her attitude towards the progressively demanding curriculum. The most important transitions occur as the student approaches the high-Intermediate Division, when the School requires attendance at classes that conflict with most academic school schedules, and the Advanced Division when professional potential becomes evident.

Winter Term students enrolled in any given school year who have been accepted for the following year must reserve a place for their future class by signing a re-enrollment form and paying the first installment in early June.
