Admissions & Eligibility

Our admissions process allows families to apply at any point during the academic year, which runs from August to July. 

The admission involves a 9-step application process that most families find easy to complete. In certain instances, we prefer to meet prospective students in person for an assessment to better understand their needs and how OWIS can meet them. For such cases, the assessment will require both the child and the parents to be present on campus.
