Student Admission

We uphold academic standards to ensure each student’s success. To enter grades 1-9, students must demonstrate proficiency in Mathematics and English through our entrance examination. For grade 10 entry, a minimum of five Bahamas Junior Certificate (B.J.C.) subjects, including Mathematics and English, with a minimum passing grade of C. All students are admitted on Academic Probation and must maintain an average of 60% or higher. Failure to maintain the same may result in the student repeating the grade level or being requested to withdraw from the school. Failure to meet this standard may result in academic support or, if necessary, reconsideration of enrollment.

Admission Policy


Prospective students undergo a comprehensive review process, considering personal documents, admissions testing, and interviews. Admission decisions are based on various factors, including age, academic history, and assessment results. If necessary, the school may request supplementary measures to support student success.

Applications undergo thorough evaluation upon completing all requirements, including payment of the application fee, submission of supporting documents, and testing. Possible outcomes include Acceptance with an offer to enroll, Refusal of Admission, or Provisional Acceptance.
