How to Apply


We endeavour to ensure applicants have all necessary information regarding registration conditions and procedures.

Compliance with admission requirements in a timely fashion will help secure a place at our Academy. Those who submit their application after the deadline cannot be assured admittance. In the case of two simultaneous admission requests, preference will be given based on academic grades.

Important Note: Application does not imply the admission of the candidates. In fact, any application may be accepted or rejected by the Academy. We urge you to take this into account so that the students are not left without the corresponding registration in their current school. Parents should avoid clothing and equipment expenses, as well as airline tickets purchase, until the official Academy acceptance is received.

Application & Registration Steps

1. Internet Registration

The most relevant information about the applicant and her family are requested by the online registration. Parent must create an account to start a new application for their child.

2. Application

Includes all documents required to complete the student’s file.  The medical, psychological and academic profiles of the applicant are very important for an adequate evaluation. The parent’s consent form, the principal’s recommendation and other forms allow us to complete the applicant’s profile.

To view all required documents please download the Leaflet at the right section of this page

3. Sending the Application

Parents must complete all forms required in order to submit the application including the visit with the Psychologist (for academy courses). Applications must be completed, including the required documents, signatures and requested information. Parents are ultimately responsable for the information sent. Parents must authorize the Psychologist to send the reports by electronic mail or upload to the Oak Academy’s site. This information is confidential and will be viewed by authorized staff only.

The Admission Board will ensure all accepted candidates have a similar profile, creating an ideal formative environment.  For this reason, admission is limited to a selected group of students.

4. Payment of Guarantee Deposit

The booking fee must be paid in advance to book the student’s place. The payment is exclusively for proceeding (pre-accepted) students. The amount of this deposit is deducted from the first tuition payment according to the selected payment plan. The deposit guarantees the student a place in the Academy, and this payment is not refundable under any circumstances.

5. Official Admission Resolution

Individual admission decisions are sent to the applicants by e-mail; parents are encouraged to check their e-mail account regularly.

School Credit

Although it is important that all candidates maintain a positive attitude during their school courses, it is indispensable that all courses taken in previous school periods be accredited. Students will not be allowed to repeat passed or failed school courses.

Le Châtelard’s reputation for academic excellence requires that all candidates maintain an average grade of 80% to be considered for admittance.

In all cases, the Board of Admissions has the final decision upon a candidate’s acceptance and his/her temporary or definitive rejection.

Psychology, Health and Ethics

Programs, activities and schedules are designed to achieve harmonious development among students. For this reason candidates are required to be in good physical and mental health. Poor health may limit admission chances.

Family Support

Parents of children admitted are asked to support the school’s moral formation by encouraging their child to comply with the standards and regulations of each academy. They are further asked to supply and complete accurate records for each candidate. Falsification of documentation will be grounds for their registration to be rejected and cancelled.


The academy will send written acknowledgement by fax, e-mail or ordinary mail once the candidate has met the full requirements for admission. Incomplete admission applications will not be considered. Payment of the admission application fee and the full or partial advance payment for the selected courses does not guarantee a candidate´s acceptance.

After a candidate’s full documentation has been received, parents will receive the Acceptance Terms and Conditions.  They must sign and return it to acknowledge that they have read and understood all information. Once returned, the admission application enters the review process, at which time the candidate is considered for admittance.
