ADMISSION PROCESS

PPROCEDURES AND REQUIREMENTS

Dear Parents /
Guardians,
We appreciate your interest in our school and very much look forward to having
you.
We know that when seeking admission into a new school, the process can be very
involving especially if you do not have much information. We have therefore,
outlined a few steps that will make entering Habis International School as
stress-free and as exciting as possible.
Please join us while we take these steps together…

1. First Step
Towards, Entering HABIS

ADMISSION FORM:
This form can be purchased from the Accounts Office. Please complete the form,
sign it, and return it to the Admissions Office either by e-mail or
hand-delivered.

2. Admission
forms will ONLY be accepted for review when…

THEY ARE FULLY
COMPLETED AND SIGNED.

COPIES OF
STUDENT’S LAST TERM’S REPORT CARD OR RECENT STANDARDIZED TEST SCORES for
students coming to Habis from outside Ghana, ARE ATTACHED.

ALL MEDICAL
FORMS including medical authorization, immunization forms and health
information are attached.

A COPY OF A
MEDICAL REPORT is required for our pre-school admission

A COPY OF
STUDENT’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE OR PASSPORT PAGE (i.e., the photograph
identification page) for a non Ghanaian, AND ONE PASSPORT-SIZED PHOTOGRAPH is
enclosed.

3. Information
provided in the admission form will largely determine the eligibility of your
ward. 
The following however, will also play a key role in that regard…

AGE: Without
exception, year groups within the school are determined by age in accordance
with the National Curriculum of GHANA           
                     
ASSESSMENT – LANGUAGE & MATHS: English Language
proficiency is a requirement as all subjects are taught in English. The school
will do an assessment of spoken and written English, as well as, Mathematics. This applies only to children aged above 4 years.

CONTACTING
FORMER/PRESENT SCHOOL: Habis will conduct routine checks on prospective
students by requesting a recommendation from their former/present school.

4. On Passing
the Assessment…

Parents will be
notified with an official Admission Letter from the Admissions Office either by
e-mail, pick-up by parent or courier services.

In the Admission
Letter, there will be an invoice outlining all fees and a deadline for
settlement.

An admission,
once offered, will be deemed accepted when fees on the invoice are settled in
full before the stipulated deadline.

 

5. Once you are
admitted…

Parents should,
upon receipt of the Admission Letter, do well to secure their place by
immediately addressing the following without which your ward/s cannot start
school:

Payment of
tuition and all other fees directly to the designated bank account; details
will be outlined in the admission letter.

A copy of the
bank deposit slip must be presented to the Accounts Office in order to obtain
an Official Receipt of Payment. Please note that payment is only considered
complete when the school has issued an official receipt.

Receive a
welcome pack with Student/Parent Handbook, etc. from the Admissions Office.

6. Waiting List…

A student may
have successfully passed the entrance exam and/or interview but a place may not
be readily available. In such cases, students will be put on a waiting list. No
financial commitments will be required of such students until the school
officially confirms their placement.

All students on
the waiting list will have equal chances of placement. However, preference will
be given to students who already have siblings in the school.

7. Fee
Structure…

 

Kindly contact
the school’s Accounts Office for briefing on fees.
