Important Notes:

  • Age-limit reference is September 1st of current year for Annual, Autumn and Spring Courses; July 1st for Summer Courses, and January 1st for Winter Courses.
  • Autumn Courses are exclusively for students from countries in the Southern Hemisphere.
  • Spring Courses are subject to space.
  • Junior High School and High School courses can be taken either by semester or annually. Full year candidates take preference. Applications per semester are subject to space.

Psychology, Health and Ethics

Programs, activities and schedules are designed to achieve harmonious development among students. For this reason candidates are required to be in good physical and mental health. Poor health may limit admission chances.

9th Grade Applicants (Third Year of Secondary School)

Experience has shown that ninth grade tends to entail issues with adjustment.  For this reason, applicants must pass through several filters in order to ensure a smooth transition and successful stay at the Academy.  Selection is very meticulous.  Applicants must interview with a Legionary or an International Educator.  Their comments must be included within the application.

Family Support

Parents of children admitted are asked to support the school’s moral formation by encouraging their child to comply with the standards and regulations of each academy. They are further asked to supply and complete accurate records for each candidate. Falsification of documentation will be grounds for their registration to be rejected and cancelled.

School Credit

It is indispensable that all courses taken in previous school periods be accredited. Students will not be allowed to repeat passed or failed school courses.

Our educational centers’ reputation for academic excellence requires that all candidates maintain an average grade of 75% to be considered for admittance.

Acceptance

The academy will send written acknowledgement by e-mail once the candidate has met the full requirements for admission. Incomplete admission applications will not be considered. Payment of the admission application fee and the full or partial advance payment for the selected courses does not guarantee a candidate's acceptance.

After a candidate's full documentation has been received, parents will receive the Acceptance Terms and Conditions booklet, which they must sign to acknowledge having read and agreed to it. Once returned the admission application enters the review process, at which time the candidate is considered for admittance.
