Interviews are a great way for us to gain a better understanding of who our applicants are, their interest in King’s Academy and what unique characteristics they will bring to the school. The interview also helps applicants, their parents and the Admissions Committee mutually decide whether or not King’s Academy is the right fit for each applicant’s personality and interests.

Note: In addition to the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT) fee, applicants must pay US $100/70 JD. This amount is payable in person at King's Academy in either Jordanian Dinars (cash or check) or other currencies in cash. Please note that foreign currency checks are not accepted. Applicants may also make direct bank transfers (net of bank commission) to the King's Academy account listed below. So that we can be sure to credit your payment properly, please indicate the applicant name on the bank transfer. Applicants from government schools in Jordan are exempt from paying these fees.
