Admission

We are open to new families interested in knowing our educational proposal, providing them with the greatest facilities to make the admission process more agile and entirely remotely.

The admission process comprises the following steps:

        Students applying for grades from Ninth to Diploma must go through an interview with the Head of Secondary level or with the Coordinator of the Diploma program, as the case may be.

4.- Evaluations:

        Since we are a Bilingual School, which has international programs, from second grade onwards an interview and an assessment of the applicant student will be carried out. In them, it is considered if the student is suitable for the teaching style that Colegio Altair offers. These interviews and evaluations can be conducted virtually.

        As of Fourth grade, the applicant student could be invited to spend a school day in the corresponding grade so that they can know our educational system  in an experiential way. As long as the classes are virtual, they are carried out through the virtual platform used in the classes with the students.
