Application Process:

  1. Contact us. Contact the admissions office to begin the application process. You will be given log-in information to access our online application system.
  2. Complete the application forms and upload all required documentation. Complete all information required through the online system and upload the documents requested. It is critical that you complete this stage before any regular or late admissions deadlines in order to be considered in the admissions cycle for entry in July (first semester) or February (second semester).
  3. Make an appointment for admissions testing. Deliver documents that are required in the original. Pay admissions testing fee. We require all students to be given our admissions evaluation assessment in person. You should bring to your admissions testing appointment the originals of the documents required and payment for the admissions application fee of 5UF (approximately USD $195) in cash (in USD or Chilean pesos), by check (from a Chilean bank), or by bank transfer (information will be provided) upon request. In some exceptional cases, older students may be able to provide other standardized test results or can take the admissions test remotely. Contact the admissions office if you will need special accommodations.
  4. The Admissions Committee will review the completed application and make an admissions decision.
  5. The Admissions Office will communicate the decision to the family by email. Decisions during a regular or late admissions cycle will be communicated by the published date for notification. Decisions for rolling admissions will be communicated within 10 business days after the testing is completed.
