ADMISSIONS

Admissions to St. Matthew´s College North.

Thank you for contacting us and for your interest in St. Matthew’s College North.

At St. Matthew´s College North we believe that one of the most important decisions you have as parents, is choosing the right school for your children.
This vital decision should be made considering which is the school that best adapts with the type of education you want your children to have.
Whenever a new student enters St. Matthew´s College North, a commitment between the School, the family and the students is created, that goes beyond all academic matters.
This bond should grow from the communion between the School´s policy and principles and the values and objectives of the families as regards the education of their children.
This is why our School develops a rigorous Admission process, in order to determine whether St. Matthew´s College North is the most adequate School for the applicant and his family.

Admissions Calendar.
Applications for admission will be accepted as from the month of April only for the following academic year.
Applications will be considered by order of arrival. Minimum and maximum enrolment levels are established by the Board. Where insufficient school places are available but a student is qualified, he will be placed on a waiting list and advised of his status.

There is no deadline for international applications.

Admission to the school will depend on vacancies, pupil’s academic results, the reports from the previous school, the interview report and the family’s compatibility with the school’s educational philosophy. The decision will be final.

Priority in the Admission
Priority in the admission to School is granted to the children of School families and to the children of our graduates and to students coming from our branch school, if and when vacancies are available and the applicants complete the admission process.
