International Admissions Process
Applications for the 2019-2020 school year will be accepted October 1st through February 15th. After February 15th, applications will be accepted depending upon space available.
Applications for the current school year will be accepted as space allows.
1.) Submit Application
A completed application will consist of:
1) Online application
2) Teacher Recommendations
3) School records
4) Admissions assessment (TOEFL or equivalent language assessment)
Once all components of the application have been collected, the student file is reviewed and notifications will be sent out during the first week of March. After the first round of notifications, applications will continue to be accepted as space is available.
After an application has been submitted, please submit a recent English language proficiency test score taken within the last two years. Allen Academy prefers that students take the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language).
Submit TOEFL Scores
After an application has been submitted, the Admissions Office will contact you to arrange your child’s interview. Students will conduct a 30-minute interview with the Director of Admissions via Skype or a similar video conferencing service.
All applications received by the February 15, 2019 deadline will be reviewed promptly. Parents will be contacted with a decision during the first week of March. All applications received after the Feb. 15, 2019, deadline will be reviewed on a rolling admission basis. Decision types: Accepted, Wait Pool, Non-Acceptance.
Accepted: These applicants are qualified to attend Allen Academy and are offered enrollment positions. The school’s offer must be accepted or declined by the date specified on the Enrollment Contract. Once a student has been accepted, a $1,500 enrollment deposit is required upon submission of the signed enrollment agreement. Subsequently, accepted international students will receive an enrollment packet which contains information about uniforms, books and additional information about starting school.
Wait Pool: These applicants are admissible, but all available enrollment positions have been filled. Instead of being offered an enrollment position, a wait pool position is offered. Wait pools are NOT prioritized waiting lists; when and if an opening arises in a particular grade, the Director of Admission and the appropriate Division Head will determine which applicant in the wait pool can best fill that enrollment position. The wait pool does not carry over from year to year. Placement in the wait pool one year does not influence admission decisions for any following year in which the student reapplies to Allen Academy. We reserve the right to give priority consideration to qualified sibling and alumni child applicants.
Non-Acceptance: These candidates are not offered enrollment at Allen Academy.
5.) I-20 Documentation
Upon receipt of the enrollment deposit and the signed agreement, the student’s I-20 documentation will be issued.
6.) Tuition Schedule
Once the student has obtained the appropriate visa, full payment of the tuition is required before the student arrives in the U.S.
