Admissions Process


Parents should complete a CGA Student Application Form and prepare the required documents. Once documents have been received, a meeting with the Head of School is arranged. Any records, references, test results, or medical records should be brought along for this interview. Skills in English and Maths are assessed for all applicants from Year 1 and up. Students who meet admissions criteria are placed according to their age. Consideration is also given to previous school level and emotional and physical maturity to ensure the most appropriate placement. CGA believes that it is important for children to be placed in classes with their age peers. The curriculum, resource materials and class delivery at CGA are based on our chart of birthday cut off dates for each year level. CGA has limited special education resources. A decision regarding admission of students with special needs is based on the school’s ability to meet the child’s needs while making reasonable adjustments. All applicants must meet admission guidelines as set out in Documents for Application.
