Admissions Criteria

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

Important Note:  Application does not imply the 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.

School Credit

Although it is important that all candidates maintain a positive attitude during their school courses, 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 85% to be considered for admittance. The following table expresses minimum overall average by country that a student must have reached to be eligible for admission.

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.

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.

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.

Acceptance

The academy will send an email 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 do not guarantee a candidate´s acceptance.

Procedure & Conditions

Application & Registration Steps

Internet Registration

The most relevant information about the applicant and her family are requested by Oak International’s representative, and are filled in the forms that are published for registration of applicants.

Application

This includes all the documents required to complete the student’s file. The medical, psychological and academic profiles of the applicant are very important for an adequate evaluation. The “Clinic” section helps us in the hiring of properly trained staff and in the formation of groups. The parents’ consent form, the principal’s recommendation and other forms serve to complete the applicant’s profile.

Sending the Application

The applications are sent each month to the Academies by the Oak International representatives, or they may be sent directly by the parents to the Academy. It is important to stress that applications must be complete, with all documents, signatures and requested information. Parents are ultimately responsible for the information sent. Those who send the applications directly must authorize the Psychologist to send the reports by electronic mail to the Academy. The files will be secured so that they can only be opened with a password by authorized Oak staff.

Official Admission Resolution

The Admission Committee assures parents that all accepted students will have a similar profile, thereby creating an ideal formative environment.  For this reason, admission is limited to a select group of students. Individual admission decisions are sent to the applicants by e-mail; parents are encouraged to check their e-mail account regularly.

Payment of Guaratnee Deposit

The guarantee deposit must be paid in advance to reserve the student’s place. The payment is exclusively for admitted students. The amount of this deposit is discounted from the first tuition payment according to the selected plan. The deposit guarantees the student a place in the Academy, and this payment is not refundable under any circumstances.
