Procedures for Admissions and Re-Enrolment
Applications for prospective students who are seeking admission will be reviewed on a rolling basis, subject to Admissions Guidelines.
Parents of prospective students are welcome to visit The Beacon School and receive an introductory tour. You are encouraged to contact the school in advance so that an appointment may be made. We are more than willing to spend time with you to help you assess whether Beacon is the right school for your child.
Submission of Application Documents
If you decide to apply to The Beacon School, an “Admissions Packet” including all required forms will be given to you to complete and return to our Admissions Associate. These documents can also be downloaded from our website. An Application Fee of Php 2500 is payable with the submission of all completed documents.
After a review of all application materials, if the Admissions Committee feels that your child shows potential of success at Beacon, and if there is space in the Grade Level to which your child would enter, the prospective student will be invited and required to come to school for a "sit-in" pre-entry visit. This visit will be with a class at the level applied for, unless the Headmaster determines that the visit should be at an alternative grade level. The duration will be the length of the school day at that level.
Students applying for Grades 4-8 for the following school year will be tested in Math and English to establish academic readiness. These students will take the tests during the sit-in visit.
Interview with Parent(s)
Following the sit-in visit, an interview is arranged with the parent(s) of the prospective student together with the grade level coordinator and the Headmaster.
Offers of Placement and Acceptance
Once the prospective student has had a sit-in visit, has been tested if appropriate, and the parents have completed an interview, then the application will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee, and a space may be offered.
Offers will generally be made by 29 January in each year. Should ample space be available at a grade level, then earlier offers may be made.
Decisions made by the Admissions Committee on acceptance for enrolment, and grade level placement, are final.
Once a place is offered, the reservation fee is payable by the date indicated in the letter of offer. Once this fee is paid, the child's place is secured.
Re- enrolment of Returning Students
The Beacon School is committed to support each individual student’s success, and their ability to contribute to the success of others. Providing that an existing student remains in "good standing", then the student will be able to retain a place for each succeeding school year.“Good standing” refers to both academic proficiency and behavior in accordance with the school’s Code of Conduct.
For returning students, the Returning Students Fee must be paid by the date advised by the Board of Trustees. Payment of the reservation fee guarantees a space for your child(ren) for the following academic year. Note: Prior to a child being guaranteed a place, all documents and the reservation fee must have been receivd by the school.
