 The Universal American School admits students of any race, religion, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national and ethnic origin, in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, employment policies, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Admission decisions follow clearly established procedures involving staff members in admissions, in the academic administration, and counselling and teacher specialists. In the review process, the Director’s decision is final regarding all applications for admissions.

Please click on the Apply  Now button to start your Admissions process.

Once all documentation has been received, the applicant is given an appointment for an assessment test or interview. Students applying for PreKG, KGI, and KGII must interview with a KG teacher. Students applying for grades 1 to 11 must take an assessment test in Math and English. All files will be reviewed based on previous school reports and assessment test results by the admissions committee. UAS will contact the applicant’s school when additional information is needed to give full consideration to the application.

Families are notified, usually within a few days of testing, whether the applicant meets admission standards. Upon acceptance, a one-time non-refundable registration is due within five days to reserve a place for the following school year. The first tuition payment must also be received prior to the deadline to avoid losing the place.

If admission is granted but no place is available, the registration fee can be paid to place the student's name on the waiting list. Once a place becomes available, UAS will contact the family.

Please note that enrollment is always conditional upon a student successfully completing the school year (or term) at their current school and submitting final grades. Prior to the first day of school, the student file must be complete. The additional documents to submit upon acceptance are linked.
