In order to submit an application to Columbia Academy, the process is as follows:

Submission of the application package

The application package consists of the following:

  • Report cards, or an official transcript, from the previous two years.
  • The application form 
  • The non-refundable application fee of $300

Interviews

Prospective students must attend an in-person interview with the admissions officer of Columbia Academy. International student interviews will be conducted online or at an authorized agency in your country of residence.

Acceptance

If the interview is a success, and students feel the school fits their educational needs, Columbia Academy will admit you as a student.

Next, the school will issue a tuition fee invoice to the student. Students will be accepted after the tuition fee is paid.

Applying as an International Student 

International students are encouraged to apply for study permits at least 3-4 months ahead of time. You will need to submit:

  • School letter of acceptance
  • Tuition fee receipt
  • Custodianship letter notarized by the Notary Public
  • Other required documents from your country of origin

International students should arrive one week before a new school semester begins. This will allow students sufficient time to purchase the school’s uniform, write the English Replacement exam, and get familiar with a new city and culture.
