Admissions process banner


All applicants must complete the admission process, as outlined below, to be considered for admission to the school.

  1. Step One — Submit the required application documents to the Admissions Office.
  2. Step Two — Once the required application documents are submitted, coordinate a date with the Admissions Office for entrance tests and interviews for the applicant.
  3. Step Three — On the scheduled test and interview date, it is essential to arrive on time. An application fee of U.S. $200, or the peso equivalent, can be paid at the Brent Cashier. Credit cards and checks are also accepted. Interviews with the applicant and parent/s will follow the entrance test. A decision on acceptance can then be made.
  4. Step Four — When an applicant is accepted, a slot is offered in a specified grade level. Acceptance is confirmed by the family through the payment of a Slot Reservation Deposit and completed Admissions Agreement form. The U.S. $600 Deposit is non‑refundable, but will be applied towards the school fees. The Deposit and Admissions Agreement form must be submitted within three working days from the family’s receipt of the written notice of acceptance.
  5. Step Five — School fees must be paid before the student attends classes.
