Admissions Policies

Admissions decisions are guided by the school’s mission, philosophy, and beliefs in which the central aim is to develop students who are “caring individuals, critical thinkers, and responsible world citizens.”

Dunecrest American School will consider applicants on the basis of their ability to succeed in the school’s programs and to actively contribute to the quality of school life. In all decisions a student’s social, emotional, and educational needs and potential are at the center of the admissions assessment process.

Admissions decisions follow clearly established procedures involving staff members in admissions, school leaders, counselors, and teacher specialists. In the review process the Director’s decision is final regarding all applications for admissions.

Dunecrest admits students of any race, color, or nationality and ethnic background to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities accorded to or made available to students at the school. The enrollment or re-enrollment of students requiring English language learning (ELL) and learning support services may be limited in line with program and staffing policies as defined academic requirements.
