    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.

    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.
