Our Admission Process


Making decisions about your child’s education and care can be challenging. Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to make a decision with confidence, while also making the process as simple as possible. We have an open admission policy. We understand the challenges of family relocations, or the need to find a better school for their children. That is why families can apply for admission throughout the year. The process of admission includes the following steps:

  1. Schedule Tour

  2. School Tours are typically scheduled for 30 minutes to an hour. During this time, families are able to tour the facilities, and ask questions about the school and our programs. Please call (+63998)999-4476 or (+63998)999-5437 or contact us online to schedule a school tour appointment.

  3. Register Your Child

  4. As there are limited slots available, we encourage families who intend to enroll to use our Online Application for Admission form since slots are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. The Application for Admission form can also be requested during the School Tour or by contacting the school administrator.

  5. Admissions Evaluation and Interview

  6. Once the Admissions Evaluation and Enrollment Deposit fees have been paid, families will be contacted for Assessment scheduling. Although we conduct initial assessments, we use this information primarily to develop a high quality instruction for learning to reach the child's full potential while enrolled at GISM. The assessment can also be done during the school tour.

  7. Acceptance

  8. An Enrollment Packet which includes pertinent information such as parents and child information, health records, etc. will be provided upon acceptance to the school. Families can opt to visit the school or be contacted for orientation prior to their child's start date.
