ADMISSION PROCESS

Oak International endeavors to ensure applicants have all necessary information regarding registration procedures. 

Compliance with admission requirements in a timely fashion will help secure a place at one of the academies.  Those who submit their application after the deadline will be subject to space availability when the admission forms arrive to the desired Academy. In the case of two simultaneous admission requests, preference will be given based on academic grades. 

Note:  Application does not imply admission of the candidate.  In fact, any application may be accepted or rejected by the Academy.  We urge you to take this into account so that the students are not left without the corresponding registration in their current school.  Parents should avoid clothing and equipment expenses, as well as airline ticket purchase, until the official Academy acceptance letter is received by families.

  • Complete online registration and application packet. All forms and supporting documentation must be received by the academy before the application is reviewed by the admissions committee.

  • Stand By: This is the initial status for an application which has been begun.
  • Proceeding: This is the status of the application from when the application documents have been received at the academy. Applications which are “proceeding” are either waiting for additional documents or for an admissions decision.
  • Written Examination and Skype Interview: Once the complete application has been received at the academy the applicant must also submit the written assessment and have a Skype interview with the academic coordinator. This interview will be scheduled by the school.
  • Admissions Decisions: Enrollment capacity is determined each year by the school based on the number of local day students enrolled in each class. Admissions decisions are dependent on these numbers. Applicants for whom there is not space in a given class are encouraged to choose another Oak International academy.
    • In the case that there are not enough spaces an applicant may choose to be placed on a waiting list.
    • Should an applicant choose to apply to another Oak International academy, Everest International Program will send the application to the chosen academy.
  • Booking Fee: After a student is accepted they should pay the booking fee before the welcome information is sent.
  • Welcome Packages: The welcome package with the I-20 visa form is sent in May.
  • Forms: The family should return the following forms to the academy. See the attached checklist which we send the families.
    1. Student Information Form
    2. Data Form
    3. Canadian Visa Information
    4. Notarized Permission to Travel Internationally (Bring original in August.)
