We don't have application deadlines. However, all enrollments are subject to space availability. We recommend to reserve your place as far in advance as possible. As of March 31, 2015, all places are already booked. Currently, we are negotiating additional places in the residences and accept applications on the waiting list. However, please note that we cannot guarantee a place. In case, we cannot accept the student your payment of the application fee and the tuition deposit will be refunded in full.
Please note that all applications are considered in the order they received. We can confirm the place availability only after we receive your application.

Visas, Permission to Travel, and other travel documents
It is the responsibility of the student's parents/guardians to contact their local embassy (or other appropriate office) in good time in order to obtain any visas/entry documents required for visiting the USA. In cases where a visa is refused, please send us a copy of the visa refusal letter from the Embassy or Consulate. Our normal cancellation charges apply if notification of a failed visa application is received less than 40 days before the course begins. If the visa refusal letter is received more than 40 days before the course begins, a full refund will be given less a non-refundable application fee, tuition deposit and bank and payment processing charges, if any.
Please be aware of your country's requirements on the laws regarding unaccompanied children travelling abroad. A consent document or letter may have to be produced upon departure to prove that the child has the permission of the parents or guardian to travel.
To ensure that individual junior students travelling alone, and small groups of juniors travelling without a group leader, are not held up at US Immigration, we will issue a letter of confirmation to be shown upon arrival.
