How to Apply

Application Form  

Step 1: Review the

To facilitate the application process and ensure that all necessary forms and documents are received by NVS in a timely manner, we generated the Application Checklist for your convenience.

Step 2: Complete the Application Form and submit the required documents

Please note that all requested information and application documents must be submitted before the admissions process begins. Once the application is complete and all materials are received, the admission office will review the application. Completing the application form does not guarantee admission. It only prepares it for “Step three” of the application process, which is the review of the application.

Step 3: Process and Review of Application

Review of the applications takes time. It may take up to two weeks for the admission office to process a completed application. Applications may continue to be received by the admission office staff. However, official processing of applications may be deferred to a later date.
The NVS academic year starts in August and ends in June of the following calendar year. Applicants for admission to NVS are strongly encouraged to apply as early as possible. There are no firm application deadlines, but as certain grade levels tend to fill up rather quickly, it is recommended to apply sooner rather than later. The application is reviewed in light of available seats, and the school's ability to provide adequate EAL and/or Learning Support. If the Admissions Office has questions or concerns about a student, the family will be contacted to provide additional information.

Step 4: Notification of Application Status

  • Offer of Placement
  • The acceptance will be made by the Admissions Committee after reviewing all documents. If your child meets all admissions criteria, you will receive a formal letter of offer from the Registrar and can begin to anticipate a positive transition into the NVS Community. For the new school year commencing in August, new students are generally not offered places until returning students have completed their re-enrollment process. Acceptance for new students will be offered before the end of March.
  • Wait Pool
  • If an applicant meets admissions requirements but is applying for enrollment in a grade level or program that is full, then that applicant will be placed in the wait pool for that particular school year. If a place becomes available, parents are notified and will receive an offer of placement (please see previous section). If it is determined that space will not be available during the requested school year, parents are notified in writing. If a candidate is interested in applying for the following year, a new application must be submitted.
  • Deny
  • An applicant may be denied admission when there are concerns about academic, social or emotional, or when NVS is unable to offer a program to adequately meet an individual student's learning needs.

    Step 5: Payment

    Upon acceptance of the applicant a one-time non-refundable registration fee is required for all new students before they are officially accepted into the school. Please contact our Business Manager with any specific questions pertaining to invoicing and payment of the school fees via:

    Step 6: Additional Documents

    Before the first day of school, additional documents may be required.
