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 8, 2018​, applicants must complete the above application process by January 18, 2018. After that date, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
