SJAS’s Admission System has been carefully set to meet a certain sequence of steps. Inquiry is answered by the Admission Deputy. This brief introduction about school capacity, fees and education system is sufficient enough to help the parents take a decision.

Policy Applied:

  • KG students undergo a general evaluation session by the KG Stage Supervisor. Supervision include testing capability to take part in a conversation, reply to a simple question, simple knowledge of colors, shapes, favorite food, …..). For a 4 year old, it is more likely to be a friendly chat than an enrollment evaluation session.
  • After acceptance, parents are interviewed by the school principal discussing relevant information from both sides.
  • Parents are requested to fill in a detailed application, pay school fees and complete their file with obligatory documents.
