2015-16 Enrollment Information

All dates below are for 2015-2016 Academic year. Specific dates will be added as we get closer to enrollment periods.

Enrollment for the 2015-2016 school year will be available online starting July 6, 2015. In the initial "Open Enrollment" period all applicants have an equal opportunity for admission regardless of submitting an application on the first day or the last day of "Open Enrollment". The Open Enrollment period is July 6, 2015 - November 27, 2015. Applications will be accepted in all grade levels. If the number of applications exceeds the number of available spaces for any grade level, a system generated, random lottery will be held to determine who is admitted.

After November 28., applications will continue to be accepted and admission will be offered based on the order in which the application is received. If a lottery is required and your application was not submitted within the Open Enrollment window, your application will be positioned on the wait list in the order in which it is received.

Families will be notified within 7 days of the close of the Open Enrollment period if their student has been accepted or if a lottery will be held. Families who are sent an acceptance letter will be given a specific time frame to respond. If the school does not receive a response during the time frame outlined, the applicant will be removed from the accepted list and placed on the wait list.

Application Process

When the number of applications received within the open enrollment period exceeds the number of seats available, a lottery will be conducted to determine admission. (Lottery rules) Applications will be accepted, date and time stamped, and processed in the order in which they are received.

Applications for new students who have siblings currently attending the school, must apply within the open enrollment period to receive the appropriate preference for admission. In the event a lottery is conducted, notices will be mailed to applicants within 7 days of the close of the initial enrollment period. When submitting an application for a new student that has a sibling currently attending please be sure to mark the appropriate box on the application so that your children are linked and are afforded the sibling preference for admission and discounted tuition.

Applicants offered admission to the school will be sent a Letter of Offer with a time frame in which to accept or decline the seat. If a response is not received within the time frame the offer will be rescinded and the applicant will be moved to the wait list based on the expiration of the offer date.

Residency preference is only offered to applicants who reside in Abuja prior to the date applications are accepted for the lottery. Please be advised that applicants who receive a preference for admission based on the statements made on their application will be required to provide verifying documents at the time of registration and must submit an affidavit confirming their place of residence. Those unable to provide documentation will forfeit their seat or residency preference. Abuja residents are required to provide;
