Arabic Year Admissions

Arabic Year at King's Academy (AY) enrolls 15-20 students from around the world each year. These students, in grades 10-12 (including post-graduate students) share a desire to explore the Arabic  language and culture. Students admitted into AY must have demonstrated suitable academic achievement in their current school, have a willingness to immerse themselves in a new culture and language and be able to show the required maturity to live in an overseas boarding environment. Students of varying levels of Arabic language - from beginner to advanced - can be enrolled in the program.

A complete application to Arabic Year will include the following:

  • Student application
  • Parent application
  • Academic recommendation
  • Character recommendation
  • Transcripts from the current year and past two years
  • Interview (to be conducted via Skype or phone)

To receive notification by March 9, 2017​, applicants must complete the above application process by January 19, 2017. After that date, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
