Official cumulative school records should include: report cards, discipline records, and IEP/504 documents (if applicable). School records can either be mailed or emailed directly to OCSI from the current/previous school or they can be hand-delivered to OCSI in a sealed envelope (unsealed records will not be accepted). For middle and high school students, transcripts/report cards must show all courses taken and grades received for at least the last three years. 

Please note, we are unable to consider your application until all documentation is received.

A non-refundable application fee is required at the time of application. Payment may be made by bank transfer or by cash in person at the school office. For fees and payment info, please see “Tuition & Fees”.

Once we have reviewed your application, we will contact you to make arrangements for an interview with the appropriate principal and testing. Students in grades 4 and above are required to take a standard Reading assessment on the computer; this assessment requires an additional testing fee of ¥15,000, due on the day of the interview/testing. 

Our admissions decisions are based on a variety of factors, including admissions priorities, class size, English proficiency, special needs, and class dynamics. We will communicate with you by email regarding admissions decisions (acceptance, denial, or waitlist) within two weeks of the interview/testing date. 

Once you receive notice of acceptance, please follow the instructions in the email from the Admissions team to confirm your enrollment and make appropriate payments.
