Priority Admissions Process for GenCE Families

As member schools of Generations Christian Education (GenCE), Small World Christian Kindergarten (Small World), Norwegian International School, and Island Christian Academy (IslandCA) are greatly blessed by the opportunities for collaboration that this affiliation brings. One area in which this collaboration benefits our students is in admissions, as graduates of GeneCE Kindergartens have priority in admissions to GenCE Primary Schools, and participants in GenCE playgroups also have priority in admissions to GenCE Kindergartens.

For the last two years, Small World and IslandCA have implemented a Priority Admissions Process where, rather than formal interviews, teachers from IslandCA visit Small World in Term 1 to observe and assess the children in the classroom in collaboration with Small World teachers. Many of our families have chosen to apply for admission at IslandCA through this process, and we have been delighted to hear about how our graduates are developing and enjoying their time at IslandCA!

In the 2018-19 School Year, Small World students in Junior Kindergarten (equivalent to K1) will be able to apply for admission to IslandCA during Term 3 rather than in Term 1 of Senior Kindergarten (equivalent to K2), and successful applicants will receive IslandCA Year 1 placement offers prior to general applicants.

We hope that this helps to streamline the admissions process for our school community!
