Description of the admission process
For the academic year of 2019/2020 the process of admissions to Letovo School consists of six different stages. These stages have been developed in such way that every applicant will have the opportunity to be evaluated on his/her own individual strengths and weaknesses, have access to practice exams, and have an opportunity to expand their level of knowledge in difficult subject matter.
To begin the application process, it is required to first complete an application form.
The second stage of the application process will occur online. Once the applicant has successfully registered online they will have access to various practice diagnostic tests and simulations in a range of subjects on letovo.online. After practicing there is a final test and once it has been successfully completed the applicant can then proceed to the next stage.
During the third stage, the applicants will then undergo the first online exam test that will be monitored.
In the fourth stage of the admission process the applicant will be expected to take exams in person on the school premises. If the applicant does not live in Moscow they will be given an alternative exam that is to be completed online and like the previous exam it will be proctored. Upon successful completion of these examinations the applicant will then be able to proceed onto the next stage.
The fifth stage of the application process involves interviews with a subject Teacher, an English Teacher, and a Boarding representative. The interview with the English Teacher will take place in English. In addition to the interviews, the applicant will be expected to participate in group games. This stage is important to understanding the applicants interests and pursuits, readiness to take on heavy academic loads, independent problem-solving abilities, teamwork, adaptability to boarding life and living within a small school community. While the students are interviewing the parents will also be invited to the school for an interview to speak with representatives of the school’s administration.
Upon completion of the interview the Admissions Committee will make a conclusive decision regarding acceptance. During this stage all the information gathered on the applicant will be reviewed and taken into consideration, not limited to but including the application form, results of the testing, the written essay and the interview.
After all, six stages have been completed a definitive decision will be made regarding acceptance.
All applicants recommended for admission by the Admissions Committee will have equal opportunities to study at Letovo, regardless of their family’s financial situation. If the situation should arise and parents cannot fully cover the cost of their child’s tuition, the family will be aided by the school with help from the School Scholarship Fund.
