How is your child admitted in SESO?

Applicants will be considered for admission when:

  • All required documents are completed and provided to the Registrar.
  • Director determines admission, based on the student’s record, and space availability.

When is your child officially admitted to SESO?

An official letter will be sent by the Registrar to the parents notifying the Student’s acceptance or if your child has been admitted to SESO under certain conditions (probation, interviews with Director, etc.)

Parents will have TEN DAYS to bring or mail the Tuition Policy Agreement, signed, with the payment to the Accounting Department.
