New Student Registration
Each step must be completed successfully before moving to the next step.
- Step One: On-Line
- Fill out the Online Application Form and pay the Application Fee (This fee is non-refundable). No paper applications will be accepted at the school.
- A confirmation will be e-mailed with your Application Number. This Application Number is very important and will be used as a reference for your application.
- Your application will be kept on file in sequence and you will be contacted when it is time for Step Two.
- Step Two:
Once your On-Line Application is approved, prospective parents will be given a window of time to drop off copies of the following application documents.
- Report Cards of the student from the past two sessions (1 copy each)
- Birth Certificate, PR Card or Passport for proof of Canadian Residence & Age (1 copy)
- Health Card (1 copy)
- Immunization record (2 copies)
- AHES will not copy documents.
- If documents are not complete, they will not be accepted.
- Step Three: Entrance Exam
Once a complete application is received, and it meets minimum requirements, the prospective student will be scheduled for an Entrance Exam. The Entrance Exam constitutes a measure of basic reading and mathematics skills for the student’s grade level. The exam will be reviewed and a decision regarding next steps will be emailed to you.
- Step Four: Admissions Interview
After a successful Entrance Exam, the school will contact parents to arrange for an interview. During the interview, prospective students and parents will meet AHES staff.
- Step Five: Acceptance & Payment of Fees
After a successful interview, the parents will be notified regarding a final admissions decision. To reserve the spot, the Registration Fee, Materials Fee and Last Month’s Fee (June 2018) must be paid within two weeks of being accepted. These fees are non-refundable.
Kindly note, all fees and dues must be cleared before the appropriate due dates. The school retains the right to cancel the admission based on unpaid dues or incomplete applications.
