Grade Level Placement

SAS believes that it is important for children to be placed in classes with their age peers, especially at Pre-Kindergarten (PK) and lower elementary grade levels. Applicants to our Pre-K3 program should turn 3 years old by July 31st to be considered for semester 1 placement. Children with August and September birth dates will be considered for semester 2, however seats for semester 2 may be limited. As such, we recommend that parents consider applying for the following year’s Pre-K4 program.

Students who apply from schools or educational systems with a different school calendar (like those commonly found in schools in Korea, Japan or Australia) will be placed in the grade that they are currently attending if they are admitted at the start of the new school year. If they are accepted in January, they will be placed in the grade that they have just completed in their previous school.

All students must graduate from Grade 12 before their 20th birthday.
