All students who apply for admission to MICS must demonstrate through entrance assessments and/or previous school records that they can benefit from the educational programmes offered. MICS may contact an applicant’s previous school should further information be necessary in order to process admission.
In addition to meeting admission criteria in relation to suitability to benefit from the academic programmes offered, students must meet the English language requirements for the year level into which admission is sought. Where English is a second language, the school must be sure that the student will be able, through available English as an Additional Language (EAL) support, to access the curriculum.
Where students have existing special needs, it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians to fully disclose the nature and extent of these needs at the time of admission, and to provide all relevant documentary evidence. The school reserves the right to determine, prior to admission, whether a student’s need for additional support can be met by available Student Support Services (SSS) programmes. Where the school determines that it is not in a position to offer the required level or nature of support, admission will not be offered.
Conditional Placement may be offered in circumstances where the school deems this necessary. In such instances, regular, periodic reviews will be held to reassess the student’s admission status.
Where a student has been admitted to the school with an identified need for additional support – learning support, EAL support or guidance support – additional fees may be charged to the parent/guardian.

Admission to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is subject to previous examination results and/or school reports, as well as admission criteria as stipulated by the IBO.
A student who has received schooling equivalent to the highest year at MICS from another educational institution is not eligible for admission to MICS. A MICS student who has completed two years in the IB Diploma Programme may enrol for a further, final year in order to complete graduation requirements.
By applying for a place at Morgan International Community School parents authorize the school’s Admissions Office to contact the applicant’s previous schools to clarify questions relating to academic achievement, behaviour and special needs, and to confirm that the applicant was in good financial standing at the time of departure.
