STUDENT WELLBEING IS OUR PRIORITY

It is our mission and responsibility at SJI International to support the health and wellbeing of students within our school community.

Admissions

Community

ONCE A LASALLIAN

Our SJI International alumni community is 1200 strong, and remains connected globally.

We are a Lasallian Catholic school in an international setting, and our entrance criteria reflect our aim to ensure a balanced intake for our school which acknowledges our ethos and heritage. We aim to enrol children who are able to fully participate in the life of the school, in accordance with our mission statement. We review all our applications against the criteria below to ensure that we maintain within our student enrolment the best possible balance of children whilst recognising the principles and values of our mission.

Entrance Criteria

 

Catholic Faith As a Lasallian school, we prioritise applications from Catholic families; your child's baptism certificate is required as part of the application process.
Siblings We prioritise sibling applications whilst considering all other entrance criteria. Please note that siblings need to be successful in our entrance assessment; each sibling is treated as an individual.  
Academic Ability  We are academically selective and all children must pass a period of observation and assessment (Early Years) or an entrance assessment. The entrance assessment features computerised testing in English Language, Mathematics and Developed IQ, along with an interview. We are not able to admit a wide spectrum of children with special educational needs as we do not have the resources to support them. If your child has received learning support in the past you may wish to contact us for more information.
Ability and Desire to Learn

We admit children who can make the most of the opportunities that we have on offer. Children must be able to work alongside other children in a cooperative manner, behaving well in class and around the school.

English Language

We teach in English and all children must be fully fluent in this language. This is assessed as part of our entrance assessment.

Returning Students and Board Recommendations

SJI has a strong tradition in Singapore and we acknowledge returning students and Board recommendations when considering applications.

Residency, Citizenship and Diversity

Children must be resident in Singapore with at least one parent and be in possession of an appropriate immigration pass. A child must hold a Dependant’s Pass, Permanent Resident Pass, or a Diplomatic Passport. We are unable to accept Student Pass holders and LTVP Pass holders. We are currently not accepting applications from Singapore Citizens or from holders of dual nationality where one of the nationalities is Singaporean. The school strives for a balance of diversity amongst all classes.

Children of Staff

Our teaching staff receive prioritised places for their children.

Exceptional Circumstances

Parents should advise if there are exceptional/extenuating circumstances in the family as these may be able to take these into account.

These criteria are subject to regular review and amendment. Applications will be managed in accordance with the most current admissions policy.
