Non-Selective Admission Policy
The ACS System is highly academically-oriented without being highly selective. The criteria for acceptance in a class are academic attainment and age (based on the Lebanese Curriculum Regulations)
There are no academic requirements for acceptance into Kindergarten (3 to 5 years of age). Prospective students at these levels are interviewed; they must be toilet-trained and able to speak and follow simple instructions.
All other prospective students take diagnostic tests in the core subjects. These tests help to determine if the students have attained the minimum expected standard for each subject. The school then makes final placement decisions but can resort to the various strategies at its disposal to help bring a student to the required level. For example, there is the option of attending extra classes in a subject. Special academic support is taken very seriously by the school.
The admission process is intended to be personal and informative for all prospective families.
Application and Required Documents
There is no application deadline, but it is recommended that the admission process be initiated early on. Applications are accepted throughout the school year.
Along with the student application form, you will be asked to provide us with certain documents.
* Completed Application Form (Student Registration Form)

Students applying to enter Grades 1 and above, sit for diagnostic tests as part of the admission process. Upon completion, the diagnostic tests are marked and a decision upon placement is made by the school.
Admission decisions are made after careful evaluation of the candidates. Results of diagnostic testing and previous school records are considered on a case-by-case basis. Additional criteria for admission include motivation, social and emotional development, willingness to work hard, and the ability of ACS to accommodate the needs of the candidate.
Please note that, in order to complete the registration, the above mentioned documents should be presented upon initiation of the admission process in support of the application. A final admission decision cannot be made without this information.
Once accepted and the required fees paid, a student is considered successfully registered at ACS.
